Yes, we now officially have a sitting president who is also a criminally accused citizen.

Deputy Judge President Aubrey Ledwaba ruled this morning the decision to prosecute this matter was not in the hands of prosecutions boss Shaun Abrahams.

“The setting aside of the withdrawal of criminal charges has the effect that the charges are automatically reinstated,” said Ledwaba.

He will face 783 charges of corruption, fraud, money-laundering and racketeering.

eNCA and Ipsos are updating this poll every week to track changes in the three largest contested metros as the election date nears.

The poll is based on a fairly accurate sample, for example 74% of the people polled in Tshwane were black, and 22% were white. 75% of the voters are under 50, 53% are working, and 26% are unemployed.

The latest eNCA poll shows that the Democratic Alliance (DA) has moved ahead of the African National Congress (ANC) in the Tshwane, Johannesburg and Nelson Mandela Bay metros.

In Tshwane, 36 percent said they will vote DA, and 27 percent said the ANC.
In Nelson Mandela Bay, 37 percent will vote DA and 27 percent ANC.
In Johannesburg, 32 percent of voters said they will choose the DA, and 31 percent chose the ANC.
The EFF polled 9 percent in all three cities.
