Number One is really tired. Having put himself on a tight schedule by going everywhere to show that he ain’t going nowhere, he is now feeling the effects. Last week, at yet another manifesto launch speech, the Prez declared: “There is evidence everywhere you go that South Africa is the future of this country.” Huh? many asked, brows knitted. But he has been saying a lot of sweet nothings lately. Here’s another gem: “What is freedom? Because there is a way to understand freedom in generality. Because if you understand it in generality, you might think we have achieved it.” Eish, the dialectics.
