Chick­ens’ll be roost­ing till the cows come home

Sunday Times - - OPIN­ION -

ALIT­TLE bird in the for­mer gov­ern­ing party known as the ANC (the Gup­tas are the gov­ern­ment now, don’t you know?) tells Hog­a­rth #Gup­taE­mails were “trend­ing” at the party’s na­tional ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee meet­ing in Pre­to­ria last Sun­day.

So much so that a brave NEC mem­ber de­manded that No 1 ex­plain the leaked let­ter re­veal­ing plans for him to re­set­tle in Dubai.

The man called Oros, the over­age pre­fect of the ANC kinder­garten, sprang to No 1’s de­fence.

To rub­bish news­pa­per re­ports about the Dubai plan, he pointed to the fact that No 1 has lots of cat­tle and poul­try in Nkandla.

“How can the pres­i­dent go to Dubai with his cows and chick­ens?” asked Oros.
