Sisulu’s com­ments about Kh­wezi are un­be­liev­able

Sowetan - - Opinion -

Lindiwe Sisulu must re­ally be jok­ing if she thinks she is wor­thy of the high­est of­fice in the land, fol­low­ing her com­ments on Fezek­ile “Kh­wezi” Kuzwayo. She told Ra­dio 702 pre­sen­ter Euse­bius McKaizer last week: “I think that she [Kh­wezi] be­lieved that she was raped.”

Sisulu has put the fi­nal nail in her po­lit­i­cal cof­fin in her ef­forts to be­come ANC and SA pres­i­dent. In a coun­try where women are told that spousal rape is a fam­ily is­sue, Sisulu should have known bet­ter.

I be­lieve that we be­lieve that Sisulu be­lieves that we be­lieve what we should not be­lieve. Con­fused yet? Just about as con­fus­ing as Sisulu’s state­ment.

Sisulu has re­vealed her un­ac­cept­ably high lev­els of ig­no­rance where women’s is­sues are con­cerned. Maya An­gelou said: “When peo­ple show you who they are, be­lieve them the first time.” Un­for­tu­nately for you, we be­lieve you Lindiwe Sisulu. Just say­ing. Sandile Ntuli, Jo­han­nes­burg
