You are probably wondering what is Middle Finger Management (MFM). It is best explained by describing the traits of a typical MFM manager and then follow this up with an example.
The most common traits, amongst many others, are myopic leadership skills, rhino like skin, ostrich style denial and a self-inflating ego. Combine these with access to a limitless source of funds, our taxes, and one has the recipe for a dictator in the making.
The example is none other than Jacob Zuma; he has honed these skills to a fine art. He has no problem in publically raising his middle finger to South Africa in various ways. Apart from his total lack of leadership skills and numerous hidden agendas he is actually just clueless in all senses possible. Is this buffoon trying to out-steal Mugabe at our expense? The sooner SA gets rid of Zuma the better for all of us. Zuma is nothing but an unconvicted thief.
Have you noticed his habit of resetting his glasses on his nose by using his middle finger? One would think that Zuma, with all his resources at hand, would be able to find a better optician to sort out his slipping glasses. I however think this is just his subtle way of saying ‘Up yours South Africa’.
