The weird world of politics
Hypocrisy 101 Fake Biko at it
Number One and his acolytes have no shame. First, it was SAA board chairperson Dudu Myeni who, while going to Parliament to present on the fortunes of the national carrier, decided to use the services of British Airways to get there. Then the champion of radical economic transformation and black empowerment, Brian Molefe, pitched up at the labour court with three white lawyers. Lastly, it was Number One himself who told ANC delegates with a straight face that the ANC needs to know which business interests have captured the state. Uncouth deputy Biko Andile Mngxitama has spent weeks trying to get attention, but to no avail. He even begged Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Juju to debate him in public. But the EFF insisted that he must first take a bath and then muster the support of more than seven people. After his party failed to get its campaign to occupy Absa bank branches off the ground, they settled on journalists as soft targets. On a week that his party targeted anti-Gupta critics, Mngxitama confirmed publicly that he is asking for donations from the Guptas. Coincidence?
