Talk­ing fore­head

CityPress - - Voices -

Some have over the years made a meal of the fact that Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma did not get much of a for­mal ed­u­ca­tion in his youth and was no in­tel­lec­tual like his pre­de­ces­sors.

Re­cently, Zuma, ob­vi­ously on a roll while ad­dress­ing a Youth Day event, poked fun at his lack of ed­u­ca­tion, con­firm­ing to the gath­ered thou­sands that in­deed it was true that he had never gone to school.

“No teacher can ever claim he saw this fore­head in a class,” he added to much gig­gling from his young au­di­ence.

Some call the fa­mous fore­head “the dou­ble-decker”.
