WHAT HAP­PENED THE AP­POINT­MENT of Kgalema Mot­lanthe as Pres­i­dent of South Africa in place of Thabo Mbeki at­tracted hardly any neg­a­tive com­ment in lo­cal news­pa­pers – es­pe­cially af­ter his first speech, in which Mot­lanthe gave as­sur­ances that SA be­longs to all, black and white. Mot­lanthe again com­mit­ted him­self to democ­racy, non-racism and non-sex­ism and made so­lu­tions to the Aids, in­ad­e­quate skills and crime prob­lems his vi­sion. THE WIT­NESS said Mot­lanthe had earned re­spect for the way he per­formed his first of­fi­cial du­ties as SA’s new head of State. Volks­blad agreed that he’d “made all the right noises” and had shown through his Cab­i­net selections that he was pre­pared to make a dif­fer­ence. The Sun­day Tri­bune said he was def­i­nitely the best man to lead the coun­try on the path of re­cov­ery and heal­ing.
