South Africa's economy is struggling, and support for the country's president, Jacob Zuma, is dwindling. As his popularity hits an all-time low, the main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, is trying to sway public opinion in its favor.
South Africa's top court has ruled that Parliament did not hold President Jacob Zuma accountable over his use of state funds to upgrade his home. The court's ruling could trigger impeachment proceedings.
South Africa's deeply divided ruling African National Congress (ANC) is set to vote for a new party leader. The party of freedom icon Nelson Mandela has been embroiled in a bitter battle over who will replace Jacob Zuma.
In his last speech as head of the ANC, South African President Jacob Zuma has admitted people are not happy with the state of the party. The race to succeed him is too close to call.
Now that Cyril Ramaphosa has been elected as the president of the ANC, many are demanding he deliver on his promises to clean up South Africa's ruling party.
