Pop­corn min­is­ter

CityPress - - Voices -

Don’t be mis­led by the ti­tle of Min­is­ter of Small Busi­ness Lindiwe Zulu’s port­fo­lio. She is no way tiny. She is feisty in de­bates and re­cently threat­ened to sort out an EFF MP out­side the par­lia­men­tary cham­bers. Those who have seen a pic­ture of her dur­ing ex­ile days pos­ing next to an AK47 will have an idea of what Siyahleba is talk­ing about. But op­po­si­tion MPs will stop at noth­ing to make her feel small. This week, as she sought to in­ter­cede dur­ing another squab­ble in the House, an EFF MP re­ferred to her as Min­is­ter of Amakip­kip. Even by par­lia­men­tary stan­dards, be­ing called the Min­is­ter of Pop­corn has to be a new low.
