Quote of the week

The judgments are replete with the findings of dishonesty and mala fides against Major General Ntlemeza. These were judicial pronouncements. They therefore constitute direct evidence that Major General Ntlemeza lacks the requisite honesty, integrity and conscientiousness to occupy the position of any public office, not to mention an office as more important as that of the National Head of the DPCI, where independence, honesty and integrity are paramount to qualities. Currently no appeal lies against the findings of dishonesty and impropriety made by the Court in the judgments. Accordingly, such serious findings of fact in relation to Major General Ntlemeza, which go directly to Major General Ntlemeza’s trustworthiness, his honesty and integrity, are definitive. Until such findings are appealed against successfully they shall remain as a lapidary against Lieutenant General Ntlemeza.

Barack Obama for President

Given the fact that the USA is still the most powerful and meddlesome country in the world, it is rather important who becomes the next President of the United States. On Tuesday American voters in many States go to vote for their candidates in the primaries on Super Tuesday and I am rooting all the way for Barack Obama. No, its not (only) because he is sexy and black, but because he seems to have an intelligence and integrity – given the limits of American electoral politics – so sorely lacking in most elected officials (also those here at home)

So I am rooting for Obama all the way. Who wants another 8 years of the triangulating, cautious and cynical Clintons in the White House. Now, I wonder, when will we get our own Obama here at home. Sorry Jacob Zuma, you just ain’t it. Here is a video setting Obama’s speeches to music.
