Helen Z conquers. Without stilettos...

06 November 2012, 10:00

MoMasedi, worker and loyalist at the Department of Safety, Security and Liaison, Limpopo Province has apparently taken on himself, or perhaps been ordered, to sing the praises of the ANC in general, and the President’s in particular.

What with the media and general populace being disingenuous, (That word again!), and unnecessarily negative about South Africa and the ANC, it is the right of said parties to practice these publicity gimmicks. Such as asking poor Mo to step up to the plate to get a beating worse than Nancy, (if that is possible), though one has to say that Christians, Atheists and all others from several sides of the various political, religious, political and other spectra were offered a free swing.

On a slightly different note, though, it appears a tad late with the clock hands getting very much on for midnight, when the Liaison function of a department is lumped with Safety and Security. The shade and nostalgia of BOSS, et al is looming in the corners. Which brings me to the point of thinking that Helen Zilles’s sojourn in Nkandla was perhaps seen as a security and safety threat to our esteemed Leader, hence Mo’s article written in the pure lingua franca of the Revolutionist.

He does clearly indicate on his FB page that: “I make the revolution irresistible.” What revolution and when it is to take place to change what, he unfortunately fails to explain. All I know is that revolutions in Africa always involved guns, bullets, bloodshed, hegemony and lawlessness.

So it is perhaps understandable that the Madam’s rag-tag imperialist army of occupation, whose total strength could be counted on two hands, required the protection, of the street leading up to someone’s private state sponsored house, by busloads of people as well as the Police. Her deadly hands, roughed and calloused from being a desperate housewife of the DA residence demanded that a rifle be brought to, and fired, during the publicity stunt.

Her known love for, and active participation in bicycling, made her storming of Nkandla all the more dangerous as she was perfectly fit to invade the homestead of the Leader, thereby somehow exposing her desperation and hypocrisy. Although she applied for, and received permission, to look at the place, one presumes from Mo’s article that this storming, (at a sedate walking pace), of the homestead would have resulted in establishing herself in the study from where she would have usurped the power form the ANC, had her quest been successful.  

Personally I would hesitate to call her bankrupt, just because she does not drive one of those Large Black Models with blue lights stuck all over it and siren going full tilt when she goes home. Missing another supper with husband and kids after having put in an 18 hour workday to ensure that some, (dare the words 'educational refugees' slip in here?), got some services delivered.

Neither would I call her short sighted, because she wears glasses. She after all, does keep them on most of the time and they are usually made to correct short-sightedness.

Now I apologise if Mo takes offense at my rather irreverent ramblings, but it may be the only way to express that the leader of a degenerated party that is nostalgic to the good old apartheid days have rather successfully invested in a few black faces to ease her forays into black neighbourhoods to scavenge for votes.

This I judge by the reaction to COSATU House, and now Nkandla outings. It was rather fierce responses to so-called theatrics and publicity gimmicks and the drive for power by a mere woman. Whose job as the Opposition Leader it is, and it is expected from the electorate, (who by the way hopefully is watching), to score political points, canvass for votes, make speeches and ask questions from the Government. That is what a democracy used to be all about.

Perhaps the fear is that come 2014, the poor and unemployed may look past the colour of a Madam who has been marching for a dream that unfortunately still needs marching about.

A Woman, without stilettos, who does not sing about bringing guns and inciting crowds to kill others.....
