South Africa's opposition Congress of the People (COPE) is blaming the ruling African National Congress (ANC) for introducing what COPE described as dictatorship into the country's political dynamics ahead of this year's elections. COPE leader Mosioua Lekota said ordinary South African should be given the right to chose who governs them and should not be forced to accept a leader chosen for them. But the ruling ANC say Lekota's criticisms are intended to score cheap political points ahead of upcoming general elections. Aubrey Matshiqi is a political analyst. He tells reporter Peter Clottey from Johannesburg some South Africans are questioning Lekota's credibility.
