JZ and the cooked goose

I note with some admiration – as one feels when watching a cornered rat fighting for its life – that JZ is now going to get a number of lower ranking officials to take the fall for the building of his palace, and the wasteful expenditure therein incurred.

How unremarkable and I wonder only how many of these underlings are loyal supporters of he and the party, what they’ll get in return and who in particular gets to sweep the whole thing eventually under the carpet.

You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of us, all of the time. The game is up – we know it and you know it, JZ.

Resign - like “Dr” Pallo Jordan did - as your goose, he is cooked. Eish!

Legally, it's quite simple (and a defence for the architect): it is abundantly recorded that the architect consulted with JZ on an ongoing basis. Any reasonable architect would as part of his presentation point out the various buildings to Zuma. And Zuma as a reasonable Head of State would then establish that fire pools, cattle kraals, chicken runs, tuck shops, a medical facility that is the biggest building in the compound (that dreaded word again), houses for relatives, moving and rebuilding houses just so the fence runs straight etc etc are not security measures. QED, finish and klaar. The problem is getting him into a court of law. Looking forward to what comes out of the woodwork when the architect appears before court. And the fact that the SIU wants to claw back R155 million puts into the spotlight the unbelievable waste/backhanders happening under the ANC government.

I'm absolutely stumped that the ANC in our day and age searched long and hard for their best candidate to put forward for it's presidency and came up with an illiterate cattle herder with half a dozen wives, as crooked as a question mark and as thick is pig manure but twice as dense. This man needs a thorough examination by our good Dr Pallo Jordan for a spine and a brain.

Anyone waiting for JZ to do the right thing is seriously in need of help.

Mark H writes,"You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of us, all of the time.... JZ." He does not have to fool all of us, he has to fool his supporters with imaginary bogey men that will make their lives miserable if they do not vote for him. Thats all he HAS to do.

Hey Mark, good to see you back again from a construction stint. Everytime you come back I wish you could write a positive prose in your eloquent way, but to no avail - the sheit just keeps piling up and it is all we can talk about.
