Taxpayers to pay lobola

16 April 2012, 12:58

Taxpayers should brace their bank accounts rear end once more, for further financial molestation. If you thought the E-tolling system was a pain in the rear, well you have yet to be screwed by the president’s fourth wife. The polygamist urge has once again summoned another wife from the estrogen species – if the urge persists, inevitably we may just see the specie becoming endangered than extinct.  But in most African traditions the act of polygamy is not considered to be taboo, it is as common as poor service delivery or endless nonsensical utterance from a fat man in a purple suit.

Now you probably asking yourself; R.Phiri who are you to question the president’s personal endeavors? As a tax paying citizen, I should be concerned with his polygamist acts, as my tax money makes his wet dreams a reality. What you should be asking yourself is who is sponsoring the luxurious life style of the president’s wives? Is it the ANC? Or perhaps that fat chap in a purple suit? By all means he can be a polygamist but not at the expense of tax payers. So if you think of the situation rationally, we basically are paying lobola for the president.
