President Jacob Zuma has had a disastrous term in office.

Adriaan Basson, author and News24 editor

We're in a bad space as a country, the economy is not growing and our institutions have been wrecked.

Adriaan Basson, author and News24 editor

State capture is often misunderstood by a lot of people.

Adriaan Basson, author and News24 editor

He [Zuma] had to capture the ANC first, and then state institutions before he could bring in his son and the Guptas.

Adriaan Basson, author and News24 editor

We would argue that he is the enemy of the people. The way he re-purposed the state and diverted resources that should have gone to South Africans makes him enemy number one.

Pieter du Toit, author and Huffington Post editor

The fact that he survived the Nkandla judgment by the Constitutional Court is remarkable. When you read it again, it shocks you anew.

Pieter du Toit, author and Huffington Post editor

The institutions of democracy have been eroded.
