Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kgalema Petrus Motlanthe is a South African politician who served as President of South Africa between 25 September 2008 and 9 May 2009, completing the second elected term of Thabo Mbeki.
