| The weird world of politics
Just to demonstrate that he does not have that “white man’s disease” called stress, Number One partied all afternoon on his birthday. In all that relaxation he sought to display, he ended up saying much more than he meant to. He told the audience, mainly of older women, that he had given Ontlametse Phalatse’s mother money to “go buy a licence” so that she could drive the new car he had bought for her. Rather an unfortunate comment, given the high death tolls over the Easter weekend as a result of illegally acquired licences.
Was it not just ironic that DA leader Mmusi Maimane attended a march against Zuma last Friday while wearing a bulletproof vest, accompanied by his wife who was not wearing one? Siyahleba can only conclude that Maimane must be suffering from the aforementioned white man’s disease, because he was also missing in action for this week’s protest march. “MyMoney” is currently seized with the whole matter of firing his mentor, Helen Zille. A whole lot of especially black people have virtually blackmailed him to get rid of Zille or forever wear the title of “Uncle Tom”.
