There is an old saying: babies nappies and politicians should be changed often – and for the same reason.
Unfortunately, this was not the case with the last election. So now what? We have to sit with Zuma for another five years.
An even worse scenario could be if Malema (as he has already threatened) forms a coalition with the ANC, which will give them a two third majority and then they can proceed with a Zimbabwe (which stands for “Zero Intelligence maybe because all bloody whites emigrated”) style land and ground grab.
In the process they will have totally destroyed what’s left of the economy.
On the other hand, there is Cyril Ramaphosa. Shrewd, relatively free of baggage and many times more intelligent than Zuma, already a billionaire in his own right, which means he would not have to use taxpayer’s money to enrich himself.
Is Ramaphosa going to sit with arms folded and watch our country (his too!) go down the drain, or has he already worked out a strategy to take over?
Describing politics in South Africa can best be said by a young son asking his father to explain politics to him.
The father thought that his son was too small and young to understand it but he tried to explain it to him by using metaphors.
“As the head of the household you can call me the president. Your mother who runs the household and does all of the administration is the government. Your nanny is the working class, you my son are the people and your little brother is the future. Sleep on it and tell me tomorrow if you understand.”
During the night the boy’s little brother starts crying, and the boy wakes up to see what is wrong. He tried to pacify his younger brother, but then smelt that his brother has actually dirtied his nappy, so he went to fetch his mother. He however tried in vain to wake her as she was fast asleep so he went to see if he can get the nanny to wake up.
Her bedroom door was however locked and when he looked through the keyhole, he noticed that his father was in bed with the nanny. Realizing he was not having any success he went back to bed.
The next morning he told his dad that he now fully understands politics, and being curious his dad asked him to explain.
He then went ahead and said: “The president screws the working class, while the government is fast asleep. The people are being ignored and the future is deep in sh*t!”
A true reflection of where we are!
