Inaugural dufus – Nomsa Dube

For my new series on dumbass politicians, the first one comes with a familiar distinction. They don’t get dumber than this, but the year’s still young…

Following the unfortunate deaths of 7 people who were struck by lightning in a rural area, the KwaZulu-Natal MEC for co-operative governance and traditional affairs Nomsa Dube, boldly called upon the department of science and technology to investigate the cause of the lightning.

This daring politician further illustrated her substantial aptitude for political office by insisting that:

Scientists from the department could perhaps help us and come up with instruments that could help community members protect themselves against lightning.

Apparently, her allegedly resourceful, but very strange department had,

…dealt with floods and fires, but lightning was new to us.

Yes, Nomsa, lightning may not quite be a traditional affair, but good luck with your probe anyway…
