Zuma's ANC - a turbulent timeline

Archbishop Desmond Tutu spoke this week of how President Jacob Zuma measured up to Nelson Mandela. "There's no justification for a president to have a home like Nkandla," he said.

But what's the history of Mandela, Zuma and the ANC?

The ANC is the oldest liberation party in Africa. Founded in 1912, just two years after South Africa was united into one country after the Boer War, it was a major force against apartheid and produced the country's first black president, Nelson Mandela.

From its revolutionary beginnings to its current embattled President Zuma, it's had a turbulent history.
