On the twelfth day of Governing - A Presidential Carol

01 November 2012, 08:58
In the run up to Mangaung and the fast approaching festive season I took the liberty of adapting the Christmas carol “Twelve Days of Christmas” to a more current  and political version. For those that don’t want to read the complete carol just scroll down to the last verse.

Let’s see how creative us News24 readers can be; copy and paste the last verse in your comment and then edit it to your version and post it.
