This was seen by many to be the saintly Mandela’s blessing, and Zuma went on to be elected President of South Africa. The South African people and parliament demanded that he repay that money, which they say could have gone to improve the substandard schools in black townships around the country. But these are some of the “people” that Zuma soon forgot about. Zuma’s mismanagement of the South African economy, coupled with his corrupt governance, brought it to near collapse, and the Rand, the country’s currency, to an all-time low. But like all corrupt and failed African leaders, Zuma does not know when to quit.
