Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O

09 December 2012, 09:02

Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O
And on his compound he has a lawyer, E-I-E-I-O
With a summons here and a charge there
Here a scandal there some corruption
Everywhere a legal swamp
Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O

Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O
And on his compound he has five wives, E-I-E-I-O
With Lobola* here and a wedding there
Here a nag there a groan
Everywhere a moan
Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O

Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O
And on his compound he has a heliport, E-I-E-I-O
With a Huey here and a Bell there
Here a Sikorsky there a Rooivalk**
Everywhere a helicopter
Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O

Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O
And on his compound he has a bunker, E-I-E-I-O
With water stored here and food over there
Here a portaloo there an arms cache
Everywhere prepared
Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O

Old MacZuma has a Nklanda, E-I-E-I-O
And outside his compound he has a nation, E-I-E-I-O
With a riot here and a strike there
Here a protest there dissatisfaction
Everywhere discontent
Old MacZuma has a Nklanda he does not care, E-I-E-I-O

*Lobola - This African tradition requires that a price be paid for the right to marry a women, usually in cattle but more so in cash in modern society.

**Rooivalk - An attack helicopter manufactured by Denel of South Africa.
