In the mind of the pseudo-communist Nzimande, Zuma is always right

10 April 2014, 21:00

Really, I find it very hard to consume the remarks attributed to someone who is said to the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Agriculture and Environmental Affairs Member of the Executive Council (MEC) Meshack Radebe. It is said that Radebe, speaking during his roadshow in Greytown  said, “Nxamalala (Zuma) has increased grants, but there are people who are stealing them by voting for opposition parties”. What is even more disturbing is the fact that he said this in the presence of Zuma, who did said nothing to stop him, which is characteristic of him. For example, when Malema, addressing the filled to brim Thaba Nchu Stadium on Youth Day in 2008, declared the league’s preparedness “to take up arms and kill for Zuma,” who was also present at the rally, if the criminal case was not dropped against, he did not rebuke him. Reluctantly, he did so, amid the mounting public outcry. Zuma is not a leader.

Clearly, it leaves much to be desired when the MEC cannot differentiate between the party and the state. More disappointingly, Radebe does not know that the 16 millions, the ANC has always boasts that receive social grants, do so, because of taxpayers’ money. It is indeed alarming that someone who is said to be  the MEC can say this nonsense.

It is also said that Bonginkosi “Blade” Nzimande, who along with Jeff Radebe is Zuma’s blindfolded sycophants, said Zuma is a “disciplined and dedicated servant of the people”. Who do Nzimande want to hoodwink?

More often than not, every time the pseudo-communist Nzimande, whom the ANC Youth League (ANYCL) labelled him “the self appointed defender of president Zuma,” makes headlines in his support, reminds me the characters of Napoleon and  Squealer, from my all-time novel – Animal Farm. Through the character of Squealer (ie Nzimande) , whose loyalty to Napoleon (ie Zuma) is second to none, George Orwell (ie the author), portrays how politicians manipulate language to stay in power. Through his rhetorical parlance, Squaler would justify Napoleon’s actions, as Nzimande does with Zuma. No wonder the former President Thabo Mbeki once accused Nzimande of an “extraordinary ignorance”.

The role of the South African Communist Party (SACP), which Nzimande has turned into an opposition party to the opposition parties in support of a “liability” in Zuma, reminds one that of the sheep that would bleat “Four legs good, two legs better” slogan in support of Napoleon.

It is not surprising to hear this kind of remarks attributed to people who call themselves leaders. Having a leader of Zuma’s calibre, who is not engaging at all, other than – by virtue of having been ordained with honorary priest – preaching non-existent scriptures like ‘the ANC will rule until Jesus comes down to earth’. Clearly, he has passed a baton to his disciples in Bheki Cele, John Block and forever young Buti Manamela. Both Cele and Manamela said the Public Protector (PP) is not Jesus, whereas Block said, walking alongside Zuma is like walking alongside Jesus. What a nonsense.   

In Zuma, the ANC has the president who – unlike the the opposition parties’ ones – cannot elaborate on its policies, yet he is expected to hold is own against a stellar of world leaders on pressing global matters, while he cannot do so against the Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Helen Zille. This is joke. Really a joke. Zuma and his cabal are nothing but jokes.

Throughout the decades, and even in South Africa, this reference to the commanding heights became almost synonymous with the socialist and populist project. I think I have even heard Malema on occasion referring to the need to get control of the “heights”. Read more...
