South Africa after Zuma

February 21, 2018

Episode Notes:

Last week, Jacob Zuma resigned as president of South Africa after nearly 9 years in office. His resignation followed years of corruption scandals and the subsequent abandonment by his own African National Congress Party. Aubrey Hruby, a Senior Fellow at the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council, talks about what led to Zuma’s resignation, and the likely agenda of Cyril Ramaphosa, acting president and likely victor in next year’s election.
