| The weird world of politics It’s about time
What with so many late starts to ANC alliance and ANC-led government press conferences, it’s actually newsworthy when one of them starts on time.
ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe very considerately arrived on time for his presser designed to kick up dust about Public Protector Thuli Madonsela. Pity it still started about seven minutes late. But this didn’t stop the party’s media guys from encouraging journalists to tweet about the ANC’s punctuality. We’ll give credit where it’s due – the ANC was only seven minutes late.
