Jacob Zuma’s first South African test: Not a whiff of corruption is allowed | The Economist.

This seems somewhat positive. South Africa is seen as a leader in an area of the world infamous for corruption. Yes the minister accepted the gifts, but it seems to me that the democracy is strong enough to pressure him to forego most of them. I hope that this could be a first step in a process to deliver on a promise of a new system made with the fall of apartheid and reaffirmed with the election of Jacob Zuma.
