Prof­its of Doom

CityPress - - Voices & Careers -

Most of our at­ten­tion this week was fo­cused on the shame­less pro­mo­tion of naive re­li­gious be­liefs by false prophets. One in par­tic­u­lar, Lethebo Ra­bal­ago, claims proof of his “heal­ing pow­ers” by spray­ing gullible South Africans with in­sec­ti­cide.

So, it was apt for Cosatu pres­i­dent Sdumo Dlamini, a de­feated Zuma sup­porter, to in­voke God when asked whether the labour fed­er­a­tion had ac­cepted money from the Gup­tas. With al­most a sigh of re­lief, he replied: “No, un­ku­lunkulu usebenza em­fih­lakalweni” – which means “God works in mys­te­ri­ous ways”. Al­though this was sup­posed to be a de­nial, any­thing is pos­si­ble.
