Dead in the wa­ter

CityPress - - Voices -

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.
