Eco­nomic free­dom blighters

Sunday Times - - Opinion -

Floyd Shivambu, the deputy com­man­der-in-thief of the Red Berets, had us fooled. He and his boss were hailed as anti-cor­rup­tion cham­pi­ons af­ter they helped get rid of the Nkandla Crooner. Now it has been re­vealed that while they were point­ing fin­gers at Baba kaDuduzane in the House of Chaos, Floyd’s brother Brian was part of a gang of thieves stag­ing a heist at VBS — and shared the loot with him. Floyd and Juju ran for the hills this week, re­fus­ing to an­swer ques­tions about the pay­ments. Hog­a­rth can pic­ture Baba kaD sit­ting by the side of the fire­pool and mum­bling: “Look who must pay back the money now.”
