| The weird world of pol­i­tics It’s about time

CityPress - - Voices -

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.
