Tannie Evita explains ANC move

2012-06-01 12:29

Cape Town - Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout explained her decision to join the African National Congress after defacing a picture of satirist Pieter-Dirk Uys with red paint, the Cape Argus reported on Friday.

"I decided that I'm not going to be one of those sitting outside the tent, or kraal in this case, with the likes of AfriForum and others. I want to be in the tent to witness all the action," the self-appointed political critic said.

"There are excellent people in the ANC. I have grown to love many of them. But then there are also the others; the ANC heavyweights - and that is an understatement - who are constantly on the front pages of newspapers and in the headlines."

In a symbolic move mirroring the defacing of The Spear, a painting of President Jacob Zuma with his genitals on display, Bezuidenhout took a jar of red paint and brushed an 'X' over the face of Uys, her alter ego.

She said her move to join the ANC on April 1 shocked many people. She had since got a job in the kitchen at Luthuli House, the party's Johannesburg headquarters.

According to the newspaper, the uproar over the Zuma painting baffled her. When she looked at it, all she saw "was a koeksister [twisted doughnut] and two mosbolletjies [buns]".

      A quick history lesson for many misinformed News24 readers. The DA history dates back to the United Party, Progressive Party, and the Progressive Reform Party and has since 1948 been in opposition to Apartheid a policy of the National Party. It is correct that the National Party was absorbed by the ANC and as recognition was given a cabinet post in the form of Marius van Schalkwyk the minister of tourism. The ANC and the NATS are in the same camp hence the same way of handling issues of dissident citizens of SA. To link the DA to apartheid in any way is not knowing the facts of history

    She had since got a job in the kitchen at Luthuli House, the party's Johannesburg headquarters. At least in this role she will see a lot more of the MECs/ bigwigs/ big girths

  • watsongeorgejan - 2012-06-01 14:14

    Trust tannie Evita to position herself strategically. So, once the VVK gets its boerestad she knows she'll be appointed Anc ambassador to the independent homeland of BOEREKOSWETI!!.

  • bearpup - 2012-06-01 14:18

    EVITA...A NATIONAL INSTITUTION....THEY DON'T BUILD THEM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

  • Tamaranui - 2012-06-01 14:22

    Who cares about this Shemale...???

      Theo - 2012-06-01 14:28

      Who cares about you? At least she is someone trying to make a positive impact instead of sitting on the sidelines critizing and not contributing like the rest of you cANCers !!!

      bearpup - 2012-06-01 14:51

      OMG Tamaranui...you went to Stanford University. Are they giving coupons out to the mentally challenged so you could attend this prestigious university? Are you sure you can catch up with all your studying while learning how to type on news24? Are you actually real? What's you major? Is it perhaps Political Science? Please enlighten me....seriously...i am so confused right now.

      Cherri - 2012-06-01 20:39

      Tamaranui, you are as fake as your FB profile.

  • Zing - 2012-06-01 14:31

    Bwa ha ha Evita! May you live on forever!

  • terencevs - 2012-06-01 14:32

    Anyone else pick up she joined the party on 1 April... hahaha

      Nicolaas - 2012-06-01 21:04

      @TERENCEVS, and would you believe that the ALL NATIONAL CRIMINAL PARTY did accept her membership as well, on the 1ST APRIL? Now they can brag that they have white people joining them, yet they to stupid to realise that they just have been SPEARED by EVITA!

  • maseratifittipaldi - 2012-06-01 16:02

    Now is your chance... Now you can change the name of that dorpie where you are staying from Darling, to Skattie. Or did you join to check on Brett's proportions?

  • Hadebe - 2012-06-01 17:39

    So some shemale joins the anc and it is rewarded by a job at luthuli house, never voted 4 cancer, what about the loyal poor women who voted for them ever since? This is a resounding slap on the face. The post was never properly advertised, n the opposition is silent abt it. Can some1 out there paint a pic of his excelency stark naked this time so i could race there 1st n deface it, maybe a kitchen post at the union buildings can be created for me, heard the pay is not less than 42k a forthnite.

      tasmee.hylkema - 2012-06-01 19:50

      oh dear.....maybe you'll get it soon!!

  • sandy.langenstrass - 2012-06-01 19:03

    evita is the only person I know in S.A that has a way of talking about very controversial issues and gets away with it.Evita has a way of making us laugh about things that normally we take to seriously....yes she is unique..and we need people like this to make us see the funny side of the S.A situation.

  • Lynda - 2012-06-01 19:40

    tee hee you go Tanie Evita

  • cyntay - 2012-06-01 21:22

  • Vincent - 2012-06-01 22:12

    Smart move. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. SA if we want change in gov, let's all join ANC, believe me, once we all in, control can be our. We stand opposing, we stand alone. Tannie joined, she now has a say in the kitchen at Luthuli House. #joking but seriously joking
