Is Mbeki still in charge?

Cape Times: "President Thabo Mbeki will strive to show he is still in charge of South Africa on Friday when he makes his first state of the union address since being ousted as leader of the ruling party.

Mbeki, who denies he is a lame duck, may be hard-pressed to prove to South Africans and foreign investors that he can tackle urgent issues such as a power supply crisis that has damaged Africa's biggest economy, analysts say."
