South Africa's Zuma faces first big test of new government

South African and African National Congress President Jacob Zuma addresses supporters during a rally celebrating the ANC election victory on May 10, 2014 in Johannesburg, South AfricaBruised but victorious, Jacob Zuma will be sworn in for a second term as South African president this week. After the ANC-dominated parliament has formally elected him as president on Wednesday and he is sworn in on Saturday, Zuma faces the first big decision of his second term: who will be in the cabinet. Zuma has tended to distribute the government’s 30-plus ministerial posts among the ANC’s rival factions, meaning reshuffles have a little something for everyone. But with the country’s economic problems mounting and investors parking their money on the sidelines waiting for reform, Zuma’s choices this time round could have far-reaching consequences.
