No Change of Address


‘See those hills? Head for them and keep going!’

Un-presidented goings-on
In SA with J Zuma gone,
Last week the State of Nation thing
Was scheduled for JZ to sing
But Ram a Pozer has, instead,
Now been the one to get it read;
His laughter had become quite hearty
As president of Zuma’s party,
Thus, of the country, his add Vice
Was not, for Zuma, very nice,
But Zuma promptly got recalled
Though he’d done nothing wrong, he bawled;
(Strange, total recall, you may see,
Makes people just a memory);
With Ram elected in his place
J Zuma zoomed off in disgrace;
The Nation State? As usual, sad:
To solve the problems that we’ve had,
Committees, panels, summits called
For sections to be overhauled,
Which will, as usual, make hot air
But leave a big fat nothing there.

    I’m actually going to miss making fun of J-Z…
    Whilst I doubt Cyril will be able to make huge changes, because let’s face it, he’s still just the frontman of the cANCer, I don’t think that anyone can be worse than J-Z

  2. OOh dear.. I have to argue with the last comment… VS Naipul the writer said that India had gone back ten years for every one year since the British had left… and I can’t remember which African country recently , it was, -,where the Prime MInister, who had of course been imprisoned by the British at one stage of his rise to the top – bewailed the exploitation by the Chinese, saying under the British they had schools and hospitals and law and order and trains that worked !!! Certainly in the pre-independence days in which I grew up, there didn’t seem to be genocides, massacres, or famines in Africa…….
    Is there a decent candidate to take over where Zuma left off????

  5. I suppose it’s fair to say that a hundred years perhaps even 50 years maybe still the native Africans were/are for the most part totally uneducated and suddenly they are thrown into the 20th/21st centuries and are not equipped for it, then a few smart bastards take control and the the ignorant masses get sucked in, graft and corruption runs rampant, and the ignorant don’t know can’t understand and just follow the ‘best’ talking rabble rouser,
    I don’t know if they were worse off when the British were in control, probably were, when it comes to being exploited, the British never gave thought to preparing/educating the people for entry into the ‘modern’ world.
    We probably thought the status quo would remain forever and the sun would never set on the Empire. Which I suppose is laying the blame squarely on the English. It’s very sad.
