The power struggle between the two former presidents and the current ANC ruler emerged again in the recent ANC meeting in Durban.
It was Jacob Zuma who pushed Thabo Mbeki to become president himself, and Mbeki has not forgotten that move. Likewise, Cyril Ramaphosa made a similar move to push Zuma to become president himself.
Zuma has also not forgotten this, hence his campaign to return to parliament, and his apparent involvement with the new political party, the African Transformation Movement (ATM).
The great retaliation is evident when Mbeki sank Ramaphosa’s attempt to establish an “old member movement”, with which Zuma would have been involved, but Mbeki scrapped it because he and Zuma are not sitting next to the same fire.
