Makhanya is Zuma’s sac­ri­fi­cial lamb

CityPress - - Voices - Luthando Lukhozi Cen­tu­rion

The re­port last week – “JZ’s ar­chi­tect: ‘I won’t pay’” (City Press, Au­gust 17 2014) – that the ar­chi­tect of Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma’s Nkandla home is be­ing sued by the Spe­cial In­ves­ti­gat­ing Unit is a time­less joke.

I always won­der whether Abra­ham was re­ally go­ing to slaugh­ter and “sac­ri­fice” his one and only son, Isaac, had God not pro­vided a sac­ri­fi­cial lamb on the moun­tain.

Maybe we must blame the naughty Chris­tian God for set­ting the prece­dent of having sac­ri­fi­cial lambs to pay the price.

Well, maybe since Zuma is an or­dained pas­tor, he was fol­low­ing bib­li­cal scrip­tures by pre­par­ing the rit­ual “sac­ri­fi­cial lamb” ... Mi­nenhle Makhanya, the ar­chi­tect.
