South Africa Elects New President
Jacob Zuma, 67, was elected President of South Africa on April 22 and will be sworn in on April 10. He is South Africa's fourth democratic president. He will be accompanied by his three wives and will take the oath of office at the seat of government, the Union Buildings in Pretoria. Zuma was elected president by parliament, after his African National Congress (ANC) swept general elections two weeks ago. A polygamist with 19 children, Zuma embraces his Zulu tradition.
