Guatemala’s President Resign Amid Corruption Allegations by dammybravo(m): 10:06am On Sep 03, 2015
Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina has tendered his resignation following corruption allegations made against him, after which  a judge issued a warrant for his arrest.

Allegations were raised against  Mr Perez Molina of masterminding a scheme to defraud the customs service of millions of dollars. He denies the allegations.

On Tuesday, Congress stripped him of his immunity from prosecution, a first in the Central American nation.
A spokesman said Mr Perez Molina had decided to step down to “confront the proceedings against him”.‎

Mr Perez Molina’s resignation come prior to Sunday’s presidential election, in which he was barred from standing under constitutional rules.

Vice-President Alejandro Maldonado is expected to govern until the new president is sworn in on 14 January.

not really. He was the director at that mine during the massacre. so most people, especially the opposition parties blamed him for what happened there. But he has been cleared of any responsibility in that massacre

well,,, from what i heard and read in s.a politics it highly likely that mr cyril ramaphosa will be the next president but my worry is will he be able to fight corruption?

well that's what everybody wish cod happen,but to tell ya the truth I don't think that's gonna happen. The problem is tribalism and corruption is tearing the Anc apart. him fighting corruption isn't likely. I mean he is defending Zuma on the nkadla saga. many people in the ANC wants their next president to be a Zulu and Ramaphosa is from the Venda tribe

hmmm then zulus will have to wait for a longtime to come becoz they had their chance with zuma so a new person like mr ramaphosa is the best choice..........btw why is it that many people are afraid of speaking against the zulus even if they do sumtin wrong. That isnt gud for democracy at all.

most then believes than South Africa belongs to them. only them. They believe that they are their tribe is originated from SA and their king is the king of S.A. or is it because their tribe is the biggest one in S.A, well who knows... but we r not ready for a civil war. We'd rather let me say what they want that end up starting an ethnic unrest.

that's my opinion Bro

well I agree with u there, but the problem is in SA we don't chose our president. We only vote for the party and they r the ones who chose their president.

hahahaha thats what other ruling parties in africa also said but they lost when the time came.....i heard d.a now has a black leader..... I hope he can challenge anc dis. As for julius malema, i think he is a bad choice.

yeah that's my thoughts too. that guy cannot be trusted with. I mean malema. He is a mini Mugabe. many people says that the only reason why Vusi is the president is because The DA needs black people's votes in order for them to govern SA
