Goodbye, Trevor.

Today 11 Cabinet members resigned along with Mbeki. This includes Trevor Manuel, who has been the Minister of Finance since 1996 - respected throughout the world for his work. The news rocked South Africa's economy today, and the rand fell against the dollar - it is now over 8 rand for every dollar.

The fact that Trevor Manuel is going is a severe loss for the country. This was definitely not forseen by those trying to oust Mbeki over the years.
