Eight months into his five-year presidency, Zuma has a tough job at Davos. Dogged for years by controversy over everything from allegations of corruption (which were ultimately dismissed) and rape (of which he was acquitted) to his divisive public comments on topics such as homosexuality and teenage pregnancy, Zuma must prove his statesmanship to win the respect of other world leaders.
