Africa oh Africa – Our President at it again, F%^K the hungry, F%^K the homeless, F%^K everybody. JZ wants to use OUR TAX money (not his) R203 000 000.00 (250 000 000.00) to upgrade NKANDLA. Are they having platinum baths and toilets installed? Are they going to build a Nuke proof bunker at 2000 meters below sea level to protect his life (and that of his concubines) while mothers in the townships are throwing their babies into shithouses because they don’t have anymore hope.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE LEADERS ON THIS CONTINENT – THOSE ELECTED INTO GOVERNMENT JUST CAN NOT SEEM TO STOP ENRICHING THEMSELVES, LIVE EXCESSIVELY OPULENT LIFESTYLES, BUILD PALACES WITH EXTREME SECURITY MEASURES, FLY AROUND WITH TWO AIRCRAFT (I still find this one very funny), EVERYTHING AT THE EXPENSE OF THE POOREST-OF- THE- POOR.
Drive through any African country (except Botswana maybe) and the poverty, poor development, unhygienic and shitty-smelling conditions will hit you between the eyes every time you open the car door or window. At every place you are required to stop, hordes of snot - nosed – kids- in – tatters, some with solvent glue in hand, seems to appear out of nowhere to beg.
Then go and have a look at the digs of the President, they don’t go big in Africa, they go HUGE.
When Namibia gained independence one of the first things bought by the newly elected Government was a Falcon jet (USD 80 million or something stupid) The Honorable Samuel Njoma jumped into his new toy and flew to Europe to beg money for development.
Four years later, in the beautiful RSA, one of the first items bought was a jet for use by the President.(Do not know what it cost the taxpayer)
The despicable leaders from the previous regime (1961 to 1994) were happy to use the South African Airways for overseas visits and a very old Viscount for local trips to save the taxpayers some money.
The problem seems to stem from a guilty conscience. Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown especially if you are known to spend the hard earned tax money of your countrymen irresponsibly and on yourself and your family.
THE GREATER THE GUILT – THE DEEPER THE STEEL RE-INFORCED BUNKER
