Why Madiba??

So the ANC, perhaps at the request of Madiba, hauled this great 91 year statesman out to ask him to give his support to the ANC.  This was a fine move as seeing how much adoration this man holds in the eyes of the people is truly amazing. I would vote for the ANC if he…

Carl Niehaus resignation……..

So listening this story this morning one is struck with the obvious question: “Why if the party knew about Carl Niehaus’s financial woes that they would even consider putting into this position?” I must admit to be absolutely dumb founded by this move.  The party is already dealing with so much bad press around Jacob…
