There is nothing as smart as disarming your opponents by speaking about the nasty things you think people are saying about you behind your back – as the SACP’s Minora Blade did this week by denying an allegation that had not been made. Minora told the media it was not true that he was speaking out against the SABC because his wife, Phumelele Ntombela-Nzimande, had been fired from the institution.
Now that that’s out of the way, maybe Minora should deny that – with most of the SACP’s leaders serving in government – the party has been “captured by the state”.
