I have a little time to spare.
We are going to friends for a braai (bbq)
It is raining and miserable.
A chance to get out of this room and Mother Nature gives me the finger.
Much like the finger I would like to give our esteemed president.
But giving him the finger can land you in prison.
So I won’t.
But you can use your imagination.
In any first world country this man would have been history long ago.
Actually, he wouldn’t have been MADE president.
He had a couple of hundred fraud charges hanging over his head.
But his cronies in the National Prosecuting Authority made those go away.
The few people who tried to make a noise were fired.
In a first world country he would have lost his job when he was accused of rape.
He got off on the rape charge but he admitted to sleeping with an HIV positive woman.
But he had his famous shower and thought that would prevent him getting AIDS.
That certainly did a lot for the scourge of aids in this country.
Leading by example from the top.
Then there was the time he got the daughter of a friend pregnant.
Despite the fact he has several wives at home.
Keeping his pecker in his pants is not a priority.
The same with unprotected sex.
His many decisions when he has put people into high ranking positions only to have them overturned in court.
Because they were not suitable.
And he not applied his mind.
Now the country is up in arms because of his private residence.
It started out as a 27 million rand security upgrade.
It now stands at over two HUNDRED million.
He stood up in parliament and said he had not gained from the upgrade.
That anything done to his home HE paid for.
Part of the security upgrade includes:
A swimming pool.
A tuckshop for his wife.
A library (don’t know who is going to use that)
A million rand cattle kraal.
And several house for his relatives.
A conservative estimate of his private gains is over R20,000,000.
Five years ago this man could not afford to have his car washed.
His financial advisor paid his kids school fees.
And one of his wives rent.
This advisor was found guilty of fraud and was sent to prison.
Where he suddenly developed a life threatening illness.
And was released on medical parole.
He is now seen, regularly, playing golf.
I think the time has come for the receiver of revenue to do a lifestyle audit on our president.
But it won’t happen.
Welcome to South Africa.
The new banana republic.
It was raining when we drove to our friends.
I had my headlights on dim.
I forgot to turn them off.
One stone dead battery.
Had to phone my insurance company AGAIN.
Third time in three weeks.
Once again they were incredible.
Dial Direct…you rock.
Granny….you are an idiot.
