Barely 12 hours after my last post the political and financial landscape of South Africa has transitioned from what seemed to be relative order, into the world of un-order. With 11 cabinet ministers resigning today, the relative peace surrounding Mbeki’s departure was shattered in terms of social sentiment and financial market confidence.

The Cynefin Framework illustrates this poignantly when one considers how closely the domians of simple order and chaotic order are positioned.

The question now is how the ANC will try to assert order in the wake of these shenanigans.
