So Jacob (Kanga) Zuma is getting “touchy-feely” with the voters? He seems to have had a very productive weekend, taking a public HIV test, speaking out against crime and visiting an Afrikaner family who have lost a loved-one to crime. Good for him. This is how politics works. Thabo (Internet) Mbeki, on the other hand, comes across more as an academic, who couldn’t really be bothered with what the “masses” have to say. He is far too smart to be President of this country.
Zuma fits the mould perfectly. He represents everything this country is known for, promiscuousness, corruption, loose morals and brushes with the law.
Here is what his Cabinet would look like;
Vice President, Evita Bezuidenhout.
Minister of Finance, Arthur Brown.
Minister of Afrikaner Affairs (new portfolio), Steve Hofmeyr.
Minister Health, Shabir Shaik.
Minister of Arts and Culture, Bok van Blerk.
A disturbing element of one of his speeches this weekend was his comment that Afrikaners have adapted more readily to majority rule than their English counterparts. Could this have a “hidden meaning”? Could this mean that in the new Affirmative Action layout there will be an even “lower” tier, reserved for the rooineks? Hope not, I feel pretty marginalised where I am right now. The last thing I need is to be banned from driving a car, owning property or drinking alcohol. Don’t laugh, it could happen.
Anyway, all I have to do now is add the words, sex, Lotto, easy money, George Bush, Bill Gates, crime, Iraq, Taliban, Tony Blair, Microsoft<spit>, Linux<respect> and HIV/Aids to ensure another million hits to this blog.
