Zuma trial

I watched the lead-up to the Jacob Zuma trial verdict this morning while I was preparing for work, and it occurred to me quite abruptly how similar the aerial shots of this vehicle on the way to the court looked to those of OJ Simpson's vehicle around the time of his trial. In that instance, of course, the big question was RACE. But what is it here? Gender? Culture? Aids activism? Ethnicity? I am really interested in what the impact of the verdict, which ever direction it goes, will be, though I feel rather vulnerable in Braamfontein, so close to the action...
