‘Zoo ma se Kya’

07 November 2012, 15:10

After hearing "Nkandlagate" and "Zumaville" are now banned and President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla home should be referred to as the president's, or Mr Zuma's, Nkandla residence and not as a compound or homestead, left me thinking.

Looking up the word compound it means enclosure in which a house or factory stand? Not racist?

In the USA, the ‘Bush compound’ refers to originally Point Vesuvius, then Walker's Point, is the summer home of 41st President of the United States George H. W. Bush which is located adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean in southern Maine.   

The roads built to get to president ‘Zoo ma se Kya’ were built by us… as tax payers. Therefore you me and the man on the moon are entitled to walk, drive or cartwheel along these roads to see this compound whenever we like, to look at this monstrosity (as we have also have invested in this land)  ….  Ever heard of the queen of England complaining about people looking at Buckingham palace?

At Nkandla, when Helen Zilla arrived ‘on masse’ (all of 8 people) she was met by an angry mob in ANC t-shirts brandishing boards (not hand made, but professionally made – EXPENSIVE - made by ANC, I wonder?

Many people have compared South African politics to “Animal Farm”, by George Orwell,  but personally I think a better analogy would be to compare the ANC cabinet to “IT’ -Stephen King. 

Both can be labeled as horrors…

In both ‘IT’ and  ANC, the clowns’ persuad(ed) people to join, by dangling a ‘gift.’  In ‘IT’ a balloon.  From the ANC its food parcels, t-shirts, false promises of housing, better service delivery, and heaven even? All promises of a better life to the poor but no action!
