In char­ac­ter

So the ANC has now said it of­fi­cially. All its MPs are equal, but some are more equal than oth­ers.

Af­ter re­ports that ANC vet­eran Win­nie Madik­izela-Man­dela was ha­bit­u­ally miss­ing from her par­lia­men­tary du­ties while earn­ing a fat cheque, the party saw fit to clar­ify that it ac­tu­ally was not ex­pect­ing her to be there all the time. In a state­ment, the party ex­plained: “Her sched­ule is de­signed in such a way that it al­lows her to ful­fil her par­lia­men­tary con­stituency and other so­cial obli­ga­tions, which are char­ac­ter­is­tic to the per­son of her stature in our so­ci­ety.”
