I do not suffer fools gladly

19 April 2017, 12:38

New finance minister Malusi Gigaba.........REALLY???? I don't even think he believes this himself. O well, if the boss says so, so be it. All done "in the middle of the niiggght" - hey, there's a song in those words, I'm sure of it.

Handing the safe keys of our treasury to this clown, reeks of organized crime. One can expect it of JZ783, as that's how he rolls. But you, Deputy Ramaphosa, astute businessman, acknowledged world wide, are allowing this to happen on your watch.

You should be ashamed of yourself, in my opinion, but no, you are smiling and look quite confidant in your stance. Only time will tell how that works out for you. At this point I would like to inform the public, and maybe a reminder to yourself Sir, of who we are dealing with.

His tenure as Home Affairs Minister should have been great, seeing he has a degree in education from Westville, KZN. By that I refer to a caring, compassionate soul and a literate mind. But no, it was a fiasco!!! As all newly appointed Ministers want to impress the boss man with all kinds of scheme's, so did he. Only his scheme turned into what we call a Royal F@ckup. Why you ask - because this little snot-nose is still to immature and childish to rely on the advise and expertise of Diplomats (15 years), Attaché's to foreign missions (17 years), Immigration Practitioners (45 years), Home Affairs Officials with 30 plus years experience coming through the ranks in the Department.

He wanted to implement the Unabridged Birth Certificate for cross-border travel and so he did. He had all the info available to him on a golden platter and he still did it wrong. End result - approximately 3 Billion Rand lost in foreign income for the tourism sector. We could have lost more had the SA Travel associations, Tourism Ministry and all other relevant bodies/associations not pleaded and begged for him to rectify his mistake, which he reluctantly admitted to.

Now, I ask you Deputy Ramaphosa, shrewd businessman. In the private sector, will the board of directors still keep the CEO on, after such a disaster? I don't think so and you know they wont. How come then did you say that it is not necessary to dismiss this clown and then proceeded to give him a hospital pass? Ahhhh, he owes you one. A tso-tso, so to speak.

Now that you chaps have made him the Minister of Finance, probably with a triple set of keys to the safe, and poor old JZ783 taking the brunt of idiocracy/lunacy, completely distracting the people/citizens of this country, that contributes to that safe you guys are planning to rob, might make you feel like a financial genius. Alas, my dear Sir, you guys are nothing more than common criminals, with well orchestrated plans. Hence the term "organized crime". Which is against the law and a criminal offence.

So, in a nutshell, if we pay tax, which you blokes organized to steal in any case, makes us part and parcel of this crime.
I would say then that it is reasonable to conclude that should a person not wish to partake or fund your so called illegal "organized venture", then such a person's rights should be respected and not be harassed into paying tax.

Oh, one last rhetorical question. Since you look like the one with the most intellect in that outfit you guys are running, this ones for you Deputy Ramaphosa. In whose book does it make sense that I have to contribute towards social grants for the poor, via taxes, so that they not die of hunger but stay alive just to vote against the hand that feeds them?

WTF my bra????
