Dead in the water
The DA prides itself on always being the first to comment on developments – be it the first rainfall of the summer, the birth of a rare animal at the zoo or the start of a new season of Game of Thrones. So it was no surprise that party leader Mmusi Maimane was the first to offer condolences on this week’s death of Zambia’s founding president, Kenneth Kaunda. The only snag is that Kaunda was very much alive and kicking. Moosi had to wipe the egg off his face and apologised. It seems the Zambians may have a more legitimate reason for shoving him back on to the plane the next time he visits the country.
