The weird world of politics
Booby trap Thief of time
Perverts of the world, take note: a seminude show is coming to a television screen near you. After meeting with Zulu monarch King Goodwill Zwelithini and being plied with way too much mqombothi, the SABC’s Papa Action, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, promised iSilo that from this year, the annual Reed Dance would be televised live.
Yes, the man who does not want to show you protests will show you thousands of breasts. Imagine the plethora of perverted men who will be glued to the small screen that day watching bare-breasted maidens dance for the king and his VIPs. A Free State member of the provincial legislature (MPL), who was caught with stolen items in a store in Cape Town, has claimed that she is, in fact, “a God-fearing woman” and that it was all a mistake.
Malitaba Moleleki was caught with three pairs of earrings and nail polish in her bag. Police said she removed the price tag and packaging, and hid the items in her handbag – before paying for a packet of cashew nuts only.
Siyahleba understands our tough economic situation, but is still trying to grasp how an MPL, who earns over R800 000, could steal items worth R259. Is it really that bad? How can the US consider electing Donald Trump when they have President Barack Obama who, this week, gave a historic speech on extremism, tolerance and Islamophobia. Responding to the tragic shootings at an Orlando club, he said rhetoric and the marginalisation of Muslim Americans would make the US no safer; neither would Trump’s plan to forbid Muslims from entering the US.
