South Africa opposition urged to elect Mazibuko

In South Africa politicians are being urged to elect a young woman to be the first black leader of the official opposition in Parliament.

The Democratic Alliance's 83 MPs must choose between Lindiwe Mazibuko and an older white counterpart, Athol Trollip.

Many believe that a victory for the former would mark a major milestone in the country's political development.
