SA was happier under Mbeki: Lekota

Congress of the People leader Mosiuoa Lekota criticised President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday, saying the country was ruing the day former president Thabo Mbeki was forced out of office.

"South Africa today is less happy than when President Mbeki was driven out of office," he said in the debate on Zuma's state-of-the-nation address last week.

Lekota, who served as a minister under Mbeki and broke away from the ANC in 2008 after Mbeki was forced to step down as president, said under Zuma the country had racked up trillions of rands in debt and wasted billions more every year.

"Is it any wonder that township after township in the province you govern are going up in flames?"
