South Africans divided over Zuma  
 

A corrupt politician to some and an honorable leader to others, Jacob Zuma, the head of South Africa's governing African National Congress, is on the verge of being elected president of one of the most powerful countries in Africa.

Al Jazeera's Jane Dutton, reporting from Johannesburg, says Zuma has proven himself to be an ambitious and strategic politician whose road to the presidency was never in doubt.
