Kanye West’s tribute to Jacob Zuma’s government

When I first heard the song Runaway by Kanye West on the radio, I thought it was the most atrocious thing I had heard for a long while. Since then……………I have not changed my mind; however I do believe that it could be the most appropriate tribute for Jacob Zuma’s cabinet, especially after the Democratic Alliance’s 2010 rating of this obscene collection of misfits [the only notable exception being Pravin Gordhan for demonstrating exceptional competence in turning the South African Revenue Service around, and now running a functioning Finance Ministry].

Off course, the Finance Ministry has always been a shining light in the ANC government’s cabinets since Nelson Mandela [another exception] appointed Chris Liebenberg in 1994. The obvious reason being that money seems to be the most important concern of our liberators from Apartheid; money that can’t seem to stop finding its way into the back pockets of these revolutionaries and their cronies.

Anyway, you know the whole sordid story of how liberators liberate us from our wealth…

Here’s the chorus of the song Runaway; I don’t want to bore you with the rest of the crappy lyrics and ridiculously long video.

Let’s have a toast for the douchebags,

Let’s have a toast for the assholes,

Let’s have a toast for the scumbags,

Every one of them that I know

Let’s have a toast to the jerkoffs,

That’ll never take work off

Baby I got a plan

Run away fast as you can

The village idiot’s idiot, to address the ruined of Zimbabwe

Surely this report on Times Live is an early April Fool’s joke? It has to be. The (woodworking) tool of South Africa addressing the tool-less of Zimbabwe?

Now that I have managed to bring my howls of laughter under control, I have taken a few minutes to reflect on its veracity. If its’ true, then heaven help Zimbabwe…and South Arica.

Youth Development, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Minister (whatever the hell that is) Saviour Kasukuwere, apparently believes that Malema’s visit will facilitate

youth movements from the two countries to share experiences and map strategies

***Personal warning to Youth of Zimbabwe: If Malema is headed your way, run like hell!!! The only thing Malema can teach the youth of Zimbabwe is how to become better lap-dogs of your lunatic President, Robert Mugabe***

Perhaps Malema is not going to Zimbabwe to impart knowledge, but to learn some new moves, now that his slimy repertoire has been so brutally exposed back home. Perhaps he’s going there to learn how to “shoot the Boers” and take their farms as Mugabe so effortlessly did. They already know that getting rich through government tenders is so tedious and takes too long. Or perhaps he’s going to learn how to stay in power forever, on behalf of his ANC friends; you know, the guys who cover his back so that his poverty doesn’t show.

But a little bird tells me that the only thing to learn from people with idiotic titles like Youth Development, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Minister, is how to totally ruin a country. I’ll bet that the holder of this pompous title truly believes that he is involved in a “fight for full economic independence” which incidentally, Malema’s visit is supposed to be in solidarity with. Modern day revolutionaries – what a bunch of jokers?

Let’s hope that Mugabe treats our village idiot’s idiot, so well, that he decides to stay in Zimbabwe for good. I can just imagine the champagne corks popping at the mere thought of that eventuality.
