South Africa

These are two of the debating chambers in the South African Parliament buildings. The bottom picture is the current Parliament chamber. On the left hand side front row by the Speakers podium is a seat with the coat of arms carved at the front of the desk. This is where Jacob Zuma sits.
The dark chamber in the first photo is the old one where the apartheid laws were passed in the sixties. Today the ANC use it for committee meetings. You have to admit that's quite amusing.
