Thembinkosi Rawula was not pulling his punches or mincing his words when he called EFF president Julius Malema and deputy president Floyd Shivambu "bloody crooks". He reffers to them as "the pair", and now that he is not on the list of parliamentary candidates, he has expressed his distaste of their alleged financial irregularities and the whole VBS Mutual Bank scandal reared its ugly head again. And those chairs, what was that about
Our Ace politician is being laid bare for all to see, with his house of cards coming tumbling down around him, and the good news of Willie Hofmeyr being reinstated as head of National Prosecuting Authority's Asset Forfeiture Unit, means that maybe we might just get some of the billions that have been stolen back. South Africans who love South Africa will be happy to hear and see the NPA step up a gear with Shamila Batohi starting to find some traction in her new job.
While rumour abounds that the Zimbabwean government is about to start paying out white farmers for expropriated farms, eThekwini municipality has come under the spotlight with an alleged fifteen million Rands worth of chicken farms that it bought, which are now abandoned and neglected, not a chicken in sight.
If that wasn't good enough the Durban water treatment works that comes out of the Hillcrest Waste Water Treatment Works was tested by a local resident and found to have 390 times more E.coli bacteria than is legal, never mind safe. Worse still the tests found alarmingly dangerous levels of fats, oils and grease in the same water. We shouldn't drink it and the fish shouldn't have to swim in it. Yuck!
You know you can always tell when the shit is going to get real when two opposing parties start calling each other names, well Donald Dump and his Iranian counterpart were calling ach other's armies a whole list of names. It's childish but it is very dangeraous too. Calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps terrorists might be juvenile but I still wonder what he is trying to achieve with this other than more conflict, real important political analysts say he is heading straight for military conflict. That will generate billions in arms sales and amunition sales and bomb sales, not to mention medical equipment sales andthen the reconstruction contracts to rebuid the country can be divided amongst the victors. That's how it works isn't it
Well let's hope that they keep the military action far away from SA, because our army is in dire need of maintenance and upkeep, tens of billions of Rands are needed, but it's the Mother Hubbard empty cupboard story all over again. Too little too late scenario that is plaguing every single Government institution. I guess you can't run the country while you're stealing ti dry at the same time. It's one or the other, a choice must be made.
Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu is hoping that their national elections will give him his fifth term in office, I personally think it's time for a change, his treatment of Palistine and the Palistinian people is shameful to say the least. Best of luck to his opossition candidate.
