Beware the cornered leopard

07 December 2012, 12:06

They say a leopard never changes it spots but if one looks at Zuma he must be a chameleopard as his agendas change often – mostly to suit his political survival, not to mention his bank balance.

In the run up to Mangaung he has been decidedly low profile and seems to be trying to avoid rocking the “Tax Trough” intentionally. Unlucky for him Nkandla and other issues refuse to take a hike and fade away. Furthermore, his weak management skills are further brought to the fore when his own Party City Councillors vote against their ANC appointed Mayor (Potchefstroom) in a motion of no confidence.

Does the cANCer have any real idea of how a true democracy works? No sooner than when they realised the mistake they made they instigated the same motion against the incumbent opposition party Mayor to save face (and tenders most likely). The newly appointed Mayor did not even have time to park in her designated spot so how can they even raise a no confidence issue?

So now we have a cornered chameleopard and as most wildlife experts will tell you, never ever corner a leopard. Its desperation for survival can, and most likely will involve epic reactions and this will be achieved by either side-lining adversaries or promising them a spot at the Tax Trough. Can South Africa afford a trough that can feed 4 500 sheeple that will be in the kraal at Mangaung? I think not.

So, corner the chameleopard at own risk.
