A truly South African reality show

21 May 2014, 12:15

It seems everywhere you turn these days, reality TV is gaining popularity on the small screen. From survivor to amazing races, to just about plain rubbish in the form of the Kardashians, the reality of live and stupid TV is the place to show the enduring human spirit for the grand prize of fame and fortune that is part of the trimmings of real TV. So, in the spirit of being part of the global village, we South African’s should also conduct that race to that pot of gold at the end of our rainbow nation love for reality TV. Hence, South Africa can and should have their own metro police ‘race to Nandos,’ show. The aim of our ‘drill’ would be to see which metro police vehicle gets to Nandos first without losing a breath. (However, maybe based on the size of some of our boys and girls in blue perhaps Nandos shouldn’t be the prize). Never the less, it can’t be a real drill without a roadblock or two to make it interesting. Just like all great amazing races, our roadblocks will actually be....roadblocks. Each metro policeman must make at least 20 stops of passing motorist on their way to Nandos. Before they are allowed to proceed to the next level, they must also collect enough bribes for a large chicken with four rolls and a two liter coke. i.e ‘the Nandos weekday lunchtime police special,’ which runs daily between 11am to 3pm – or better known as the civil servants lunchtime. Naturally, the aim of our policemen’s drill is to produce the one winner who will claim the top job of being police chief in the new Zuma administration. Of course, the costs of this futrition in combat readiness will naturally be paid by your everyday taxpayer who is too poor to afford the big chicken at Nando’s anyhow. But in the spirit of the worldwide ‘drill a day,’ I for one would like us all to support our boys in blue..oops grey and orange, and let them show off all their tried and trusted shortcuts from anywhere in SA to their nearest Nandos. Hence let me be the first to say….Let the games begin!
