Zuma: Charismatic Leader?
Sorsa, Professor, South Africa, Member
Is president Zuma a charismatic leader or not?

Zuma is Controversial
Johan Chandler, Television, South Africa, Member
He is in the public eye for the wrong reasons. I believe he might surprise all and become exceptionally successful by doing the right things but he needs to shed his past. He is a controversial figure not charismatic.

Zuma is a Charismatic Leader
He is definitely charismatic because people had what you could call a natural reaction towards him some even compared him to Jesus. During the cases against him some people actually compared him to Jesus because he was accused for things they believed he did not commit. This in a way shows how committed some people were to him and could even commit serious offenses just to ensure that he leads as some even admitted on national TV that they would kill for him.

Zuma is Charismatic

I think he is charismatic for one reason- his flowers admire him. It seems as if he has been delivering more than mr Mbeki has. Charismatic - does not mean he is doing the right things it is more about how he is preceived.

Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
He is not a charismatic leader. His followers are divided and infighting is at an all time high. There is now a serious attempt to oust him at the next congress meeting.

Zuma is a People's Leader
Ntozelizwe Benjamin, Student (MBA), Member
Zuma is a people's leader this is the distinction we must make. Every leader in the ANC has a roadmap and track that they leave. For example president Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a unifier and world vision man, president Thabo Mbeki was a strategist and economist with a master plan in his mind to drive the country as well as the continent of Africa forward which he still pursues doing today.
President Zuma, due to his popularity in the ranks of people who do not know the moral values that ANC represents, made a charismatic choice to appoint ministers into his cabinet to blow up the budget (former minister of children and women and people living with disability). He employed friends to run ministries like that of communications, who had big egos not to be told what to do by their director generals.
Indeed he is a charismatic leader and what happens to those leaders they do not have a solid plan or can't think on their own and therefore are not decisive.
