There is a Nigerian saying – do not be like a fly and follow the corpse into the grave! And most would never heed such warning or wisdom from the elders even if they persisted.
I have been consistent and unequivocal in my assertion – Limpopo Provincial Government Privatized public service to benefit Malema and cohorts. So it came as no surprise, when the Public Protector fingered Malema in fraudulent tenders in Limpopo. A company by the name On-Point committed a crime and Malema in his personal capacity benefited through his Ratanang Family Trust.
But like flies, many actively or passively follow corpses to their graves as proven by those, who then followed Zuma to court and now to parliament. Also Malema still has a sizeable number of flies following him to court and to his possible political grave. It seems Zuma and Malema emit a cunning odour to attract this much unconditional adulation.
Zuma is steadily but surely taking this country and the rest of us to an early grave. When Zuma failed to declare to parliament his gifts and business interests, it was the Public Protector’s assertion – President Zuma is tardy. And now recently the Constitutional Court ruled – Zuma was irrational when he appointed Menzi Simelane to Head the NPA.
What an indictment? Not forgetting the Judge Sandile Langa and Judge Willem Heath debacle - there again he acted irrationally.
Where are the tapes used to catapult Zuma to the presidency of the country? Zuma took an oath to uphold the Constitution of South Africa and the Supreme Court of Appeals has ruled against Zuma and the NPA in favour of the DA in the infamous tapes debacle. To date Zuma and his NPA have failed to produce the tapes or hand them over to the DA.
Is President Zuma upholding the country’s Constitution?
Today’s sorry state of affairs in the ruling party and the systematic economic sabotage of the country is only possible if one has finance muscle. The so-called “friends of the ANCYL” is primarily financed from Limpopo’s ill-gotten gains. Because of Malema doing – the ANC is naked, compromised and in disrepair. As a result - the country is anxiously looking at a gaping.grave dug in 2008 Polokwane.
Like a fly, the country’s workforce is ardently following Malema into an early grave and thus taking the economy of the country and the rest of us with them.
The desperate miners have attracted opportunistic flies like Mamehlwe Sebei, who I believe is an ardent Malema foot soldier. This reject from the University of Pretoria is now plying his malice in the mining fields. And those who know him would attest – whatever he touches turns to dust and an early grave.
I shall give it to Zuma and Malema – these friends turned foe have charisma, which they use to their financial gain. The similarities are so close and that makes me conclude - they were cut from the same cloth. The two not so gentlemen attract adoring overzealous supporters. The support they get is unconditional so long as a few of their supporters earn patronage.
The two lust for opulence and excesses, knows no bounds. And because of their addiction and excesses – both have appeared in court for economic crimes. And both have used their charisma to plead their case and flies are readily available to go down with them to their graves.
The wise always say – if you’re living in a glass house, don’t throw stones. So next time Malema throws stones at Zuma – just disregard him because he’s only angry at their unquestionable similarities.
The Chairperson of Kwazulu Natal ANC put it so well when he said – Zuma is very popular. Zuma shall be elected for a second term by his province not based on principle, good governance and moral – but because of his popularity. This is one comrade who doesn’t forget who batters his bread and though futile, I shall commend him for his honesty.
And like a fly most of us shall actively or passively follow the corpse into the grave pre and post Mangaung.
