Zimbabweans See ANC Victory Strengthening Zuma's Hand in Harare

With most of the vote counting done in South Africa's general election, the ruling African National Congress looked set on Friday to achieve its goal of winning a two-thirds majority in South Africa's National Assembly, as VOA's Delia Robertson reported from Johannesburg.

Official results were expected to be released on Saturday.
