Yes, I am having to eat humble pie.
For those of you who have not been following my blog for too long… a little insight.
For five years I had four of my grandkids living with me.
Apart from the financial implications, most of it was fun.
I remember a recurring refrain.
“ Granny I am bored”
My stock reply was…only unintelligent people get bored.
Read a book.
Go and play outside.
So, it appears I have lost my intelligence.
I think I left it in Cape Town.
I am so bored I want to go to work tomorrow.
And I don’t like my job.
And I can’t even blame rampant hormones.
Well, I don’t THINK I can.
There has been some excitement in this beautiful country of ours.
I don’t know how much you saw on overseas news broadcasts.
We have an Indian family living here.
The infamous Gupta’s.
Our president’s son is a director for several of their companies.
Our president’s (one) wife works for them. They know what is happening in the government before our ministers do.
And they had a wedding for their daughter in Sun City.
Their jet, carrying 200 guests, landed at our military airbase.
Apparently, without permission.
And they were given a huge police escort to Sun City.
As afforded to royalty.
Which they aren’t.
People are being suspended.
The main fall guy being the chief of Protocol.
I didn’t even know we had one.
Somehow, I don’t think he has the clout to over-rule the ministers of defence, police and revenue.
We are told the president had nothing to do with it.
By his office/spin doctor.
The president himself is conspicuous by his absence.
Come on government we have brains.
We can think for ourselves.
Well, some of us can.
OUR PRESIDENT NEEDS TO BE RECALLED.
The question is…are there enough ministers with the balls to do the right thing?
