As North Africa goes up in flames, the local media twisted their attention to roast the Kenny Kunene kebab. Unfairly victimised for having a good time – and all legally good at that – Mr Kenny Kunene has officially declared that his famous sushi parties have sadly come to an end.
Unless you’re one of those South Africans living in a remote cave, you were probably exposed to the front page photos of Mr Kenny proudy grinning behind an almost naked, totally gorgeous blonde fully decked out with a sushi platter all over her body. The issue is certainly not racial discrimination as the previous set of photos with Mr Kunene a short while back included an equally stunning black bombshell. So, what is all the fuss about then?
Wonkie graciously invites comments from readers, the ANC, the ANC Women’s League (ANCWL), gender activists and any number of President Zuma’s wives. Wonkie also invites comments from Japan – where, believe it or not, such a ritual practice actually exists (quite possibly without the white Maserati though).
Nyotaimori, or body sushi as it is sometimes called is the practice of serving sushi or sashimi (basically, slices of raw fish) on the body of a woman who is typically naked. In depth research (i.e. checking out the Wikipedia page) indicates that this practice is far from sexist. Mr Kenny, if he were so inclined could equally have used a Chippendale instead – in that case the ritual would be called Nantaimori. Alas, it appears that neither Nyotaimori nor Nantaimori is Hunkiedori in South Africa.
Raw fish aside, Mr Kunene is a role model second possibly only to Nelson Mandela in South Africa. If ever the youth needed hope that they too could succeed despite the odds, then they need only look to Mr Kenny for inspiration.
In 1997, Mr Kunene, a teacher by profession, was jailed for fraud in Grootvlei Prison for 6 years. With just R3,000 in his bank account when he was released in 2003, he built up what is now a small empire – executive and shareholder of a mining company (Central Rand Gold), flashy cars including a Lamborghini and a couple of Porsches, decadent parties including one costing US$100,000 for his 40th birthday, night club owner (the ZAR club, in Sandton and another in Cape Town)… not bad for a mere 7 years work, eh?
