Quote of the week

Johnson used to at least be able to give a passable imitation of being Boris Johnson. Now he can’t even manage that. The gags and the mannerisms that used to be his calling card, now just fall flat. A one-trick pony whose one trick everyone knows. The surface has been stripped bare to reveal a core of molten need. Someone who craves attention and fears he wouldn’t exist without it. Someone whose narcissism leaves him devoid of empathy. Incapable of either giving or receiving love.

“We have a problem… this organisation [the ANC] is faced with a new enemy… and this enemy is composed of twins. Twins that are destroying the organisation,” said President Jacob Zuma. To loud applause from members, he said there were people in the ANC who were prepared for the organisation to be destroyed in order for them to occupy certain positions.  Lobbying within the ANC had in some cases stopped being comradely and was now deadly, marked by character assassination and gossip.  “This enemy, the one twin — authority, positions. The [other] twin is money. These two walk together; they are well armed; they are destroying the African National Congress,” Zuma warned.

The two were related because “some are looking for a position to put their friends so that they have access to resources,” he said to cheers and whistles of approval from his audience. Zuma said there were people in the organisation “who have surrendered themselves to the comrades of other comrades… who work 24 hours for certain comrades, not for the ANC. – Cape Times Report on a speech delivered by Preisdent Jacob Zuma to the ANC Western cape provincial general council
