Former South African president, Thabo Mbeki has been described as an astute cadre who inspired citizens during his term in office.
Premier of Gauteng province, David Makhura says Thabo Mbeki remains an inspiration to the country and the entire African Continent.
“I join thousands in our continent in wishing Thabo Mbeki well on the occassion of his 78th birthday. You remain an inspiration to the country and the African continent,” he said.
Economic Freedom Fighters Commissar, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi regrettably said Thabo Mbeki was a good president although he was unseated from office by Jacob Zuma with alleged help of Julius Malema.
“It would really not be an exaggeration, nor would it be hyperbole, to say the last time South Africa had a president was in Thabo. Since his recall from office, we have been ceased with mediocrity, incompetence, indecisiveness and most recently, the presence of absence,” he said.
