Gi­gaba porn not needed

Business Day - - OPINION -

Em­bat­tled home af­fairs min­is­ter Malusi Gi­gaba is at it again, this time show­ing his small fin­ger to EFF MP Mbuyiseni Nd­lozi dur­ing the de­bate in par­lia­ment on Tues­day. This is how he re­sponds to those who crit­i­cise him af­ter the cir­cu­la­tion of that em­bar­rass­ing porn video.

There are no ex­cuses for this child­ish be­hav­iour, es­pe­cially when it takes place in par­lia­ment. He is a dis­grace, a clown who, if he had any self-re­spect, would ex­cuse him­self from the po­si­tion of min­is­ter.

He must go and be a porn star some­where else, not in our par­lia­ment. It is not his kinder­garten

— the gov­ern­ing party or pres­i­dent must act now be­fore he em­bar­rasses him­self, his fam­ily, the ANC and the coun­try any fur­ther.

We are tired of lead­ers who don’t take them­selves or their po­si­tions se­ri­ously. Gi­gaba must un­der­stand that his ac­tions harm us, and will con­tinue to do so as long as he re­mains in the po­si­tion. We have be­come a joke the world over.

I urge the pres­i­dent to act swiftly and put this mat­ter to rest. Gi­gaba must also be re­minded that who­ever sug­gested he could be a fu­ture pres­i­dent of this coun­try lied to him. We are not go­ing to be led by a porn star.
