South Africa's President in serious trouble

SOUTH African President Jacob Zuma's term of office has three years to go, but his leadership may come under threat following disastrous results for the ruling African National Congress party in municipal elections.

Although the ANC - the party of the late Nelson Mandela - attracted 58.3% of the vote, its support plummeted 8% on its 2011 result and the party lost control in key areas such as Pretoria and Port Elizabeth.

Many pundits had dubbed the elections a referendum on the scandal-prone Mr Zuma, the country's leader since 2009.

A struggling economy with an unemployment rate of 27% has not helped the President's cause.
