Today in Politics: Roasting #01

The ANC celebrated their Centenary yesterday in Free State Province where the organization was formed by more honourable men all those years ago. A lot of money was spent to commemorate 83 years of resisting apartheid and 17 years of modern leaders not being able to resist dipping their hands in the public cookie jar.


The Reverend Jesse Jackson, an invited guest at the ANC Centenary was in attendance earlier on Saturday together with President Jacob Zuma at a ceremony where a bull was ritually slaughtered. Since the Reverend looked quite happy to be there, one wonders if he was fondly remembering the sermons he once used to deliver about the glory days of the Abrahamic religions as recounted in the Pentateuch.


While the good Reverend is still here, perhaps he’ll consider starting up a mega-church in South Africa. There’s real good money to be made here, considering that two-thirds of the voting population are willing believers.That could work out perfect for the ANC too for future elections. What better way to deliver more empty promises, than from the pulpit.


President Jacob Zuma delivered his usual insipid speech that lasted for two hours; luckily most of those present were the kind of people who his [Zuma’s] speech-writers pen this drivel for. As usual, more empty promises were made about how the ANC was going to be “transformed” but fortunately those who actually care about this sort of thing were safely at home, out of the scorching Free State sun, having a glass of wine, watching the FA Cup, or something more entertaining and believable.


Finally, it seems that although that jackass, Julius Malema was in the same Province during the celebrations, he was not at the actual event itself. There are those who would have preferred him being there, which would have made things slightly more interesting, but I guess the absence of more hot air from this blowhard, was also not such a bad thing after all.
