Viva to vain­glory!

On Fri­day, the pres­i­dency sent out a state­ment clar­i­fy­ing that Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma had con­cluded “a very suc­cess­ful Youth Day com­mem­o­ra­tion in Ven­ters­dorp” in North West.

It was the sec­ond email af­ter an ear­lier one con­tain­ing his speech.

This prompted Siyahleba to won­der why she should be told that the event was suc­cess­ful. Of course, the rea­son was that the event had not been suc­cess­ful. Zuma was booed and sub­jected to chants of “Zuma must go” at the start of his speech, un­til the heav­ies got rid of protesters.

The pres­i­dency doth protest too much, me­thinks.
