It was unprecedented, but definitely not unexpected. 

I can’t help wondering which of President Zuma’s handlers honestly thought it was a good idea to insist that he speak at the Cosatu rally in Mangaung/Bloemfontein on Monday? It must be the same geniuses who insist on giving him huge numbers to read in important speeches even though he clearly finds it impossible. 

The Hawks should perhaps forget about alleged coup plotter Elvis Ramosebudi and have a closer look at those closest to the president who seem intend on sabotaging or putting him in embarrassing situations.
