Zupta is bigger than the ANC …

I published this on 9 April 2014. Yes, that was three years ago. The ANC has yet to prove me wrong. This week is a good one to do so.

As my good readers would know by now, I don’t often make forays into political analysis and with good reason. Much of what I would have wanted to say, mostly has been said already by a number of erudite observers and if I don’t have anything new to add, I hold my peace. I’m not here to bore my readers with a regurgitation of commonly known political ‘wisdom’.

However, I ‘ve been hearing the phrase ‘the ANC is bigger than Zuma’ far too often from my black countrymen of late. It beggars believe, but they seem to believe it. Or, at the very least, they sincerely want to believe it. It would allow them to vote for the Singing, Dancing, Lying, Laughing, Stealing, Fucking #1 with a clear conscience against their better instincts.

I have bad news for them. If the ANC was bigger than the SDLLFS#1 they would never have made him president with the more than 700 criminal and corruption charges that were pending against him before he became prez. No they didn’t because those charges were ‘political’. But that was only the beginning of the ANC proving that Zuma was bigger than them.

What ensued was a soiled scandal- and blunder-ridden presidency that stumbled from one crisis into the next, like a drunk man at an accident scene. Nevertheless, when the ANC had the chance of ridding themselves of what by then already had become an obvious liability and outright embarrassment, not only to them, but for the whole country, they didn’t.

Instead they endorsed him overwhelmingly at their 2012 Manguang conference. Go figure. In the meantime, they had sufficient reason to fire him outright. His Merdos Touch (everything he touches turns to shit) is the stuff of legend. From Shabir Shaik and the arms deal to Zuptagate and Nkandla and many stinky places in between, the man seems to be going out of his way to embarrass the ANC. Yet, they’re sticking with their boy. The Zuptas are bigger than the country. GO Zupta, go now.

Why? You may well ask. At best… no there is no ‘at best’. The only conclusion one can make is the ‘at worst’ one. That is, the ANC is inherently and completely as corrupt as their poster boy and they like what he is doing. To say that the ANC is bigger than Zuma is akin to saying Zanu-PF is bigger than Bob Mugabe and I fear that we’re heading that way if we don’t stop the rot this election.

My advice to a young black woman at the Xai last night was that if you can’t vote for anyone then at least vote against Zuma and his corrupt ANC. So put your trifling excuses aside and vote DA. It’s not perfect but it’s the best out there.

    Speaking of prescience, judging by your more nauseating earlier posts, your newfound prescience derives from your salary-seeking membership of the armed forces in both permanent and temporary capacity posed no problem whatsoever. So what has changed? Do elucidate.

    This is the time to produce blog writing that matters. Let go of the irksome self-pity theme, and let ‘er rip.
