Manmohan and Mbeki have been commemorating 100 years of Gandhian Satyagraha at ceremonies in South Africa. Noisy supporters of Jacob Zuma, the estranged former deputy President of South Africa (about whom there is much to say but that's another story) had to ejected as they began singing his favourite resistance song awuleth' umshini wami (bring me my machine gun).

Zuma is a most unpleasant character. But I seem to remember that song from Amandla, and it is very tuneful indeed.
