Hans Christian Andersen wrote a book called 'The Emperor's new clothes' , Njabulo Ndebele made it come back to life this year with an article in a Sunday newspaper but I will try to paint the spear with his majesty the president Jacob Zuma new clothes
'The Emperors new clothes' is a story about an emperor/president who's only worry was to wear elegant clothes every hour and parade them to the general public
News of the conduct of the emperor/president travelled far away until it reached two tailor con artists who devised a plan to get as much money as they can from the emperor's appalling conduct ,they aproached the emperor's Inkandla palace/coumpond with a plan in mind
Upon arrival they told the gate keeper of which were called hounarable ministers that they can design new clothes out of a special fabric and that the fabric is thin and light and in fact would be invisible to stupid and incompetent people
The hounarable ministers then decided to tell the emperor/president who was estatic when hearing the news and he right away summoned the two tailors to his palace after little deliveration the emperor commissioned the tailors to make him the most colourful dress so to parade it in the public
Upon receiving his new colourful clothes he realised that he himself could not see them so he pretended as if he could see them so to avoid being labelled 'stupid and incompetent',his ministers also pretended they could see the clothes so to avoid being labelled 'stupid and incompetent' while complimenting the emperor on his new clothes a large crowd of the nation was shouting,singing and asking to see the emperors 'new colourful clothes',eventually the emperor decided to step outside .at first the people were suprised to see the emperor naked so they played along complimenting the emperor with fake remarks and jerrs ,they did this so to avoid being labelled 'stupid and incompetent',until a small child in the crowd remarked 'but the emperor is naked'
Today I will be the child in the crow.
President Zuma the former leader of the moral regeneration parliament project twice apologised for having sex with his two friends daughters ,tried all manner of tricks to avoid answering question for his 700 plus allegations of corruption "but the emperor is naked".
When the president publicly tells us he has a bond on his palace but the is no evidence to support his statement then'the emperor is naked'
When the president wont allow debate about his leadership quality and conduct in parliament 'but the emperor is naked'
Today i can see my president nakedness and if this will lead to me being labelled 'stupid and incompetent' then let it be so,this is my spear painting
