Membership requirements for the gravy train

12 February 2014, 07:23

So now that Julius Malema has been provisionally sequestrated, SARS clearly means to make sure that somehow he repays the R16 million which he owes in taxes.

For what it’s worth, should the sequestration be finalized, by law that will prohibit him from actually serving as a member of Parliament.

In theory that is. In practice, he’ll fit right it with many of his comrades, former or present, who are currently serving in the same government. Previous convictions disqualify anyone wishing to serve in the government – really ? Not so much it seems – more likely a prerequisite. Julius qualifies now.

The small matter of failing to register his Ratanang Trust has been carefully ignored by Malema’s legal team. It’s OK – it’s not fraud unless it can be proved beyond the doubts and excuses. (See Mac’s special School of Spinning for steps 1 through 10). That’s another way of saying nothing can be believed until it has been officially denied by the government.

Julius just wants to go and play with all his friends and join in their unlimited spending and endless parties …… what was that Pravin… a cap on what? Sorry can’t hear you over the music and laughter. Johnny Walker Blue is wonderful stuff, you should try it ! Can’t chat now, just going to restock, there’s plenty of space in my latest expensive government-funded vehicle.

All aboard for the next exciting trip on the gravy train!  Mind the gap now, make sure you step over and ignore all the lies and deception, paste on your smile of compassion for the poor and downtrodden (have another whisky – helps with the smile!)  and settle in for the ride.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
