When pigs fly...

26 October 2012, 19:57

Tony Leon, during his days as the leader of the DA, harboured ambitions of his party being favoured by the electorate with the mandate to run South Africa. It took the sobering reminder by Marthinus Van Schalkwyk that Leon's ambition would only be realised if pigs could fly for the latter to reconsider his ambition.

In short, the then leader of the New National Party was telling Leon that his (Leon's) dream was impractical. In concesion to these words of obvious wisdom from Van Schalkwyk, Leon threw in the towel. He conceded that he he had reached the ceiling in growing the DA.

He did the honourable thing, resigned the party leadership to somebody with a fresher brain. As Leon was posted to Argetina as the representative of President Jacob Zuma, Helen Zille took over the party leadership.

It appears that the Leon's ambition was contagious - Zille salso aw herself as the future president of the Republic. In a relentless pursuit of this ambition, Zille swallowed Patricia de Lille and her ID. COPE could have been swallowed too, that is if there was certainty who between Lekota and Shilowa was the legitimate leader.

De Lille could only deliver small numbers to secure the Western Cape, City of Cape Town and some municipalities.

Zille has  once dusted off her ambition of being President of the Republic by rallying the miniscule and decaying opposition behind the DA's banner and resources. This call by Zille has raised excitement within the oppostion ranks.

As the opposition prepare to take out the bubbly, it becomes important that they heed the profound words of Van Schalkwyk that the DA will be the ruling party only when pigs fly. There is also the prophecy of President Jacob Zuma that the ANC will rule until the Second Coming!

OUTA on EToll Debr

I really believe Outa is "smoking something" - they are now calling EToll laws unjust and irrational, a far cry from their initial stance of lack of public involvement. Read more...
