Abstract: 

While the challenge to African democracies of leaders who cling to power and abuse their office is not restricted to Southern Africa, Angola, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe each present their own variations on how democratic constitutions are corrupted by strongmen (Angola, Zimbabwe) or are now under threat of such corruption (South Africa and Zambia). ACM asked Alida Kok, a South African political theorist and lecturer in political sciences at the University of South Africa in Pretoria and a political columnist for South Africa’s Beeld newspaper, to compare and contrast these leaders and their respective counties’ democratic institutions.
