The weird world of politics

Blesser’s bling

CityPress - - Voices -

When Par­lia­ment’s sec­re­tary Gengezi Mgid­lana con­vened a meet­ing to ad­dress House staff, he must have ex­pected that it would be tough go­ing – he is, af­ter all, de­duct­ing their salaries for their strike ac­tion last year.

But when he passed on be­lated good wishes for Mother’s Day and Fa­ther’s Day to staff mem­bers, he could not have ex­pected that one of them would shout back: “Don’t for­get the blessers.” This was in ref­er­ence to his wife’s so­cial-me­dia ac­count, where she gloats about their good life while re­fer­ring to Mgid­lana as “my blesser”.
