The story: In his presentation to the ANC's top six last month, corruption-accused former president Jacob Zuma questioned the foundation of post-apartheid South Africa - constitutional democracy.
The context: Zuma seemed to suggest a similar arrangement to apartheid when the judiciary - the courts and judges - didn't have the power to review acts of Parliament, but only to interpret the laws legislated by Parliament.
What was said: "We are living in what we term a 'constitutional democracy' but fail to interrogate its real meaning. The painful struggle we fought was for democracy and NOT the constitutional democracy we have today. This was negotiated and [I] know, I was part of it," Zuma said.
