Not very presidential

2018-02-08 06:00

SOUTH Africans should not take offence over U.S. President Donald Trump’s remarks about African states. Here are some of the notorious achievements committed by SA’s president.

He has 783 charges against him. He faced rape charges but was acquitted. He had a child with his friend’s daughter. He has led South Africa to junk status. He has half a dozen wives supported by the state. He spent R250 million on Nkandla when thousands of his citizens don’t have a roof over their heads.

He has one of the worst education system in the world (145th out of 149 countries in a recent maths and science survey). SA is regarded as the rape and murder capital of the world. Government contracts are given to the well-connected.

In a First World country, if the president had committed such atrocities he would have been put in jail and the keys thrown away. Proudly South African.
