The excitement after breaking some social media records on Wonkie with the popular 2012 US Elections cartoon has finally subsided. This week, the comedy that is South African politics continues with more garbage being exposed about the Zuma Nkandla house.
In a nutshell, this is yet another scandal involving beloved South African president Jacob Zuma. Without delving too much into the detail, the gripe is basically around the alleged (illegal) use of state funds for personal benefit. The amount in question varies between R10 Million and R260 Million and the only things more contradictory and confusing than the ample (largely rumour-based) media reports, are the official ANC statements about it.
The latest in the saga entails a wild goose chase trying to discover whether Zuma has a bond on the Nkandla property or not (as he stated he did in parliament). Wonkie estimates that as much productive time was lost in South Africa through those reading the valueless Nkandla drivel as was lost in the mining strikes earlier this year. In the end, Zuma was confirmed to have taken out a bond of R900,000 through FNB (with a little help from his friends) in 2001. Given that the work done on the property is an order of magnitude higher than the bond amount, Wonkie wonders about the real value of all that investigation.
Unofficial spokesman and Mac Maharaj devotee, Poi Moloi, stated earlier today: “Figuratively speaking President Zuma has a bond with his Nkandla residence but spiritually speaking Mr Zuma is trying to remain detached. Mr Zuma has been trying very hard to achieve enlightenment and these false allegations of corruption are really hurting his feelings. It must stop immediately.”
For Wonkie, the more relevant question is whether the likes of residents of Lenasia, a suburb south of Johannesburg, whose (illegal) homes have been recently demolished by the council are smart enough to see the folly of voting for someone who is squandering millions on his own pad with funds that might have been used to help them. What do you think?
