Maruping The-Duke Phepheng

Display name: Maruping Phepheng
About Me:

I am black - what is there to tell?

Contrary to what the ANC NEC might think, and contrary to what he himself might be thinking, the time for Jacob Zuma to leave is now.

I wanted to offer an opinion on the coalition prospects as talks continue in different key metros but I thought nah, a lot has already been vented here.

Like it or not, this was bloody admirable. There is nothing wrong, in my view, with a race working hard to see to its own advancement, provided the process does not trample on other races.

Those who are close to me will tell you that I’m Tupac Shakur’s fan, and those who love him like I do will remember his 1996 album called The Don Killuminati: The 7 day Theory, released under the alias Makaveli.

But comrades, come on now. Really. Isn’t it time you stopped giving us councillors who know absolutely nothing other than being popular in the ward?

By now it must be clear to the majority of South Africans that speaking endlessly about president Zuma’s scandalising conduct and hoping the ANC will intervene is a bloody waste of time.

If the Independent Electoral Commission succeeds in gathering a voters’ roll credible enough to satiate thorough tests and scrutiny by all role players, including the courts, we are going to have local government elections this year.

Yesterday afternoon on my way home I switched the radio on and immediately missed Julius Malema and his outfit, the EFF.

We have been busy throughout the year. I know, I know. This is our chance to slow down and revitalise, to forget for a minute about the pounding hustle and bustle, to forget about our enslaving bosses and crazy deadlines. I know.

Can a poor man who gets rich by representing the poor still identify with them? Really?

I would love for us to take a minute and make a fuss about a simple supposition.
