In T-Boz’s words

The ANC acted com­mend­ably when it con­demned the ho­mo­pho­bic re­marks of uMziny­athi Dis­trict Mu­nic­i­pal­ity Mayor James Mthethwa. The mayor had said gay men sleep­ing with each other was shame­ful and in­creased the risk of HIV/Aids.

But cu­ri­ously, the ANC in­voked the com­ments of for­mer pres­i­dent Thabo Mbeki that no man had the right to an­nul the in­junc­tion that God cre­ated all men and women equal in His im­age. Why could they not quote their cur­rent pres­i­dent on this one?

Is it be­cause Num­ber 1’s com­ments would have been more em­bar­rass­ing?
