Mazibuko spoke during a parliamentary session in which South Africa President Jacob Zuma hit back at accusations he is failing the country, hours after allies torpedoed attempts to censure him. Facing accusations he mismanaged the economy, was AWOL during deadly labour unrest and wasted millions of taxpayers' money on upgrading a private residence, a visibly angered Zuma struck back. It was a rare flash of steel for the normally jovial leader. In one month Zuma faces the ANC's electoral conference, which will go a long way toward deciding whether he remains president of Africa's largest economy for another five years.
