As the South Africa political space gets more charged and taut, more startling and interesting political development are underway.

The new twist is the aspiration of former president Motlanthe renewed presidential ambition. Several political analyst have been reacting to this particular interest in the presidency, having been floored by president Jacob Zuma in a previous election.

It could be recalled that in his recent interview granted the BBC, the ex leader had reiterated that

” his vote for the ANC could not be taken as “given” come the 2019 elections”. But these statement did not suggest in anyway that the astute leader will throw his hat into the ring once again.

The big question now for Motlanthe is, does he stand a chance, considering his public critcism of the incumbent? going by the  aspirant who obviously have government backing and influence.
