Zuma’s new zong

Charming, isn\'t he?ANC president, Jacob Zuma, said he was happy with the delegates’ behaviour at the 23rd ANC Youth Rally held at NASREC, Johannesburg, on Sunday, 29th June.

So far, nothing bad about that. Just that the so-called “behaviour” that Mr. Zuma approved was a chant that went something like this:

“Choose to kill for Zuma”

How cute!!! Now isn’t that a beautiful song sung by thousands of ignorant young people for a man that stood trial for rape? For a man who apparently has HIV but, according to him, was able to miraculously wash it away after a *”nice hot shower”.

Where in today’s modern world do we openly hear something as hateful as this? Isn’t South Africa a democracy? Doesn’t the majority already hold power? Then why chant words like that!!!???

When questioned why, the president of the ANCYL, Julius Malema, responded:

“These are the words we use to express our love and dedication to the ANC movement” (imagine how he expresses himself to his parents??)

Yip, only in South Africa…

… and yes, this is South Africa’s “youth”: the hope of our tomorrow!

*People of the world, the cure for AIDS!! A nice hot shower!!!

SA’s highest petrol hike to date

There’s one thing that needs no Viagra to go up in South Africa, and that is petrol. At it’s highest yet, at just under R10,00 ( around US$1,27), South Africans have to tighten their belts and discover ways of dribbling this “disaster”. The country doesn’t sport of any decent¬† transport infrastructure, and the projects for World Cup 2010 won’t suffice when complete – if completed. And to tell citizens to take up walking is unheard of once everything is far from everything else. It’s not like you can go around the corner for bread!¬† It’s South Africa! We need to drive around the corner for bread!

This shame is being attributed to a weakened rand and high crude oil prices. If you ask me, it all stinks. With mass media nowadays, corporations can manipulate all they want and profit more – see where I’m getting at? The government you voted for is the government that is doing everything it can to get hold of your pennies.

But it’s moments like these that humour has got to come in and quieten the spirits of those who are paying sun-filled Caribbean vacations for the stinking rich. I got this one by e-mail. It says it all:

Company cars for the New South Africa
