Good vs Evil, the final battle

05 May 2013, 18:02

The furore created by the Gupta family, their mode of entry into SA and their apparent ability to transcend the divide between mere mortals and gods has quite devastated me.

That they were then prevented from leaving as quickly, and quietly and unobtrusively, did seem to indicate that they are after all mortal but let's not confuse issues here. After all they were now dealing with ACSA and anybody who has been through ORT knows that even Thor would be frustrated, and defeated, by them.

I fully appreciate that we are dealing here with very powerful people, people with connections, wealth and clout - never mind hordes of family - but I am left wondering about their ability to compete with another close connection of JZ Incorporated – the Chinese.

I was under the impression that the Chinese had already bought South Africa, lock, stock and barrel from JZ Inc. and now it comes to light that they haven’t. Or have they? I’m confused here.

I was also under the apparently mistaken impression that the ANC planned - nay, were divinely destined - to rule SA until the 2nd coming yet now it seems that this too may be in jeopardy.

Can it be possible that the end of the world, as in Armageddon, is now staring us in the face as the forces of evil – aka the Gupta family and/or the Chinese – stand ready, on opposing sides, to make economic war on the forces of good – aka Reverend JZ and his divided cadres?

What is to become of us? Are we destined to become embroiled in the mightiest battle ever seen on planet earth and can we survive?

Please, President Zuma, Lion of (South) Africa, Mighty Elephant, husband (and father) of many and defender of the weak, make an announcement so that we – your loyal subjects – can prepare ourselves for what may come.

If we are to fight, and perhaps die for you as comrade Malema so fervently once wished to, it would really be helpful to know beforehand who our enemy is as this may avoid unnecessary confusion.

Personally I would hate to be killed by friendly fire just because I don’t know who the enemy is, or who my friends are for that matter.

I also doubt if my life insurance would pay out if I just donned my economic freedom-fighting uniform – aka my birthday suit - and rushed fearlessly into battle wielding my laptop.
