The DA Agang planned march to Luthuli House is like disturbing a hornet’s nest

03 February 2014, 07:09

So Helen Zille and her new kissing partner Ramphele want to march to Luthuli House (for what ever flimsy reason), I hope they have more than their constitutional rights to defend them. They must have more than one plan to counter the myriad possible scenarios that await them.

Scenario one: The band of blue clad misguided DAGang followers will find the streets deserted and Luthuli House locked. Nobody at home! So they will pin their petition on the pavement and go back dejected followed by an army of journalists trying to make a story out of no story!

Scenario two: Has DAGang got an answer to the well defended Luthuli House? How are they going to counter the Shaka bullhorn battle formation where they will be attacked from behind, the flacks and head on? What answer will they have for the military veterans itching to lay their hands on the ‘last madam standing and her tea girls and garden boys, especially that they will not be carrying hot pots of tea or picks and shovels for defence. I can see the mayhem when the order for the impi is given and the horns close. The blue and green DAGang tee shirts well resemble the EFF red from the tomato missiles. Now, that will be news of international proportions.

Scenario three: DAGang meets a welcoming guard of honour hurling insults and missiles at them such that the march degenerates into a fiasco and a street fight that DAGang will not win. But what is lost on the street battles is won in publicity, some of which will be negative.

Scenario four: The march is hijacked by the EFF who are well known for their rowdiness. The march will make headlines but for the EFF instead.

Scenario five: A counter march is staged simultaneously on Zille and Ramphele’s residences and poo strewn all over. The two women will go back home to a smelly, stinking welcome.

Scenario six; the march remains banned in spite of various court actions. What a waste of money! But then, the avaricious greedy capitalists can afford to pay. After all, they will be keeping their legal friends in business.

And for all its worth, what does DAGang hope to achieve? Like attacking a hornet’s nest, where there is no honey, Luthuli House has no votes to grab unless DAGang hope to robe the ANC of its election manifesto. Otherwise, it will be a lot of sting for absolutely, eeeh…..nothing (to be polite).

But that’s just my opinion.
