The weird world of politics
Power of Mboro
Days after the appointment of Hawks boss Berning Ntlemeza was nullified by the courts, he turned to controversial Pastor Mboro’s church. At the church, Ntlemeza revealed that he, too, was a lay preacher. He could, however, not string a coherent sentence together. When Mboro took over the mic, he began by praying for Ntlemeza: “I’m saying to you‚ my general‚ you are unbreakable‚ you are indisputable‚ you are uncorruptible‚ you are unmovable‚” he said. “Even if a court says it’s over, God can resurrect you to a higher life. It’s not over until God says it’s over.” IN GOD WE TRUST Berning Ntlemeza at Pastor Mboro’s church
Strangely, Ntlemeza had directed his “sermon” towards journalists. He made it known that the media needed prayers and healing, and Mboro would accordingly pray for them. True to form, Mboro prayed for journalists because “some of you have been listed on a credit bureau, some are underpaid, some work hard without recognition”. He continued: “We are known because of them, but some are in debt, some have relationship problems, some don’t have cars and their children are on drugs, and yet they don’t write about them.” Ouch!
Hint, hint JZ
Just days after Number One shouted at parliamentarians for asking that Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini be fired, and then sheepishly apologising two days later, former president Kgalema Motlanthe said something that may or may not have a bearing on JZ. “If you are a liar and don’t tell the truth, the punishment is for people not to believe you, even when you are telling the truth. Because when you say, ‘No, you know what I was telling you yesterday is not quite the whole truth, but what I am telling you now is the truth’, what do you believe?” Subtweeting perhaps?
