Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki[3](born 18 June 1942) is a South African politician. He served nine years as the second President of South Africa from 14 June 1999[4] to 24 September 2008.[5]

On 20 September 2008, with about nine months left in his second term, Mbeki announced his resignation after being recalled by the African National Congress's National Executive Committee. That was after a meeting by Judge Nicholson for corruption.[6]

Mbeki was born on 18 June 1942 in Mbewuleni, Cape Province, Union of South Africa. He studied at the University of London and at the University of Sussex. Mbeki married his wife Zanele Dlamini at Farnham Castle in the United Kingdom[7] in 1974.[8]
