Quote of the week

A few months ago, author William Gumede described Zuma as someone with a narcissistic personality disorder — a set of traits defined by Austrian psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut as “including an exaggerated sense of superiority, a lack of self-awareness about the impact of their behaviour and having a disdain for others, who they devalue to validate their own grandiosity”. These people lack empathy, have a distorted sense of reality and are incapable of seeing anything from anyone else’s perspective. Narcissists like Zuma, Gumede argues, can’t accept responsibility and don’t care if they take down entire countries with them. The events at Nkandla, sadly for Zuma, only reinforced that perspective.

Merry Christmas

To all Christian readers (and those who celebrate Christmas for other reasons) hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks to all the contributors who made this Blog lively, at times challenging but (I hope) seldom boring. I leave you with the most camp and cheesy Christmas song I could find. Enjoy!
