Comedy in South Africa 2.0

08 February 2013, 09:01

It was few months ago when I went on a journey to analyze the comedy in South Africa as a result I inscribed an article titled “The comedy in South Africa”…I always imagine if South was my friend on Facebook, how their post will look like.  Let’s leave that for another day.

It was few months ago when Mr President Jacob Zuma was addressing the National House of Traditional Leaders Zuma and he said: “Some Africans who become too clever take a position (where) they become the most eloquent in criticising themselves about their own traditions and everything.” He went on to urge traditional leaders to play a role in helping Africans remember their roots.

After the publication of that article by City Press, there was a lot of debate around that issue. Some said “Zuma’s ‘clever blacks’ lost in media translation” while other said he is going nuts. If this was worth debating or not is something I have been pondering myself. Maybe we should ask Zuma to tell us about the person who wrote the speech for him. We all know he didn’t write it and he did not read before delivering it. His job is to read what someone has decided to write for the whole country. There is no point in debating it, we need someone who can write his or her own speeches or be acquainted with what it is written…viva academic excellent viva!

While it is evident that before Magaung, most ANC supporters we busy saying “we want change” but after Magaung we observed no change whatsoever, only the removal of those who were against some of their mandates. If you don’t believe me, ask Kgalema.  What I find funnier is that they don’t see any problem with Zuma current leadership. In fact it is not funny but it is shockingly shocking. After he has proved to us that he will use the public funds to sponsor and polish his lifestyle. The same people who said “we need change” are the same people who are quiet now. What is Zuma feeding you?

Now it has been reported that while they were in a comedy show in December, they were chilling with a glass of red wine with Zuma with his traditional beer “Umqombothi”. They drank until they got wasted then one of the comedians asked: How can we screw South Africa more? One clever idiot answered and said: “We should tax graduate. It has been reported that “Conference delegates participating in the education and health commission resolved that consideration must be given to a graduate tax for all graduates from higher education institutions. Details of the mooted tax were scant, with no explanation given about time lines for implementation, or the likely percentage to be levied, the newspaper reported” (News24; 2012). I suspect Gwede on this one.

So let me get this straight…What the ANC is trying to do is to reprimand all of those who get educated more than the President through tax. How on earth do you punish someone who does not even work? Maybe they should propose a tax on incompetency, corruption, racism, cats fights etc…How about taxing all of those who don’t have degrees for not having one? Why punish people who heard enough from varsity and they work for what they are going to attain. Who make these policies? What the hell ***excuse my language***

It probably went like…..”mhmmm lets Tax the cleaver ones. They think their clever, why do they get educated more than the President? Bazowuzwa umoya baba (They will feel the heat)”. I personally think they are trying to dismay youths from studying, so that they drop out in primary school and become senseless enough not to realize the garbage that ANC tells them and end up they voting for the ANC. So how are they going to tax those massive graduates who are without jobs in South Africa? Do they have a plan?

Studies show that most South African Graduates are leaving this country to look for greener pastures across the world hence; we have lack of skilled labours. Mr President and the other clowns, what happens if all the graduates decide to leave South Africa? Who are you going to tax then? Wait and see they will tax the elders soon. Mr President, you need to open your eyes and stop smoking mud it’s not good for your small head. This is insanity at its best, in fact I think you should be taxed more for having more than one wife.

Hands off the Graduates…
