EN PASSANT

HAV­ING read var­i­ous re­ports that the KZN ANC is about to charge Dr Makhosi Khoza with dis­ci­plinary charges, I am won­der­ing how the peo­ple at Luthuli House will take this over­run­ning of their baili­wick? My un­der­stand­ing is that no­body in the ANC may make de­ci­sions with­out a di­rec­tive from Luthuli House. No ut­ter­ance on this has been forth­com­ing from Luthuli House. I now won­der who will re­ceive the next wrist-slap­ping? I think that the ANC in KZN may find that the paw­paw is about to hit the fan. Oak­dene IT WAS amus­ing lis­ten­ing to Zizi Kodwa say­ing that Luthuli House gave their bless­ing to KZN to charge Ms Khoza. She will not be dis­ci­plined on what she said, but will be dis­ci­plined on the ba­sis of her con­duct. She has be­come in­cor­ri­gi­ble and is in fla­grant de­fi­ance against the party, and bring­ing the party into dis­re­pute. The one per­son with guts to stand up to the mafia state and its head is go­ing to be dragged in front of a bunch of in­com­pe­tents by but­ter­ing up the pres­i­dent.

His id­i­otic ex­cuses are laugh­able and the dou­ble stan­dards that the ANC ap­plies are there for every­one to see. The one and only per­son who has done all these (things) and brought not only the party to its knees but the whole coun­try is our pres­i­dent. Bryanston WHAT Min­is­ter Gi­gaga is do­ing – bil­lions in loans and rip­ping off the help­less pub­lic – with ex­or­bi­tant elec­tric­ity tar­iffs. An or­di­nary school child can then run Eskom. All these paras­tatals – Eskom, Transnet, SAA – is where the big bucks are, and all ap­point­ments and their af­fairs should go in­ten­sively through Par­lia­ment and be “run by Par­lia­ment”.

Fur­ther­more, can any­one ex­plain why there is no ac­tion on all the cor­rup­tion re­ported in the past few months in gov­ern­ment? My friend was locked up for a mere R200 fine he for­got to pay. How do these laws work? Rusten­burg
