Zexit

Post by Shavenhead » Tue Feb 13, 2018 5:48 pm

This seems to be dragging out, for like, ever.

Finally after about a week of meetings behind closed doors, the ANC NEC have come out and announced that they've "recalled" Jayzee since he told them "fuck you" and refused to resign. I'm guessing recalled means fired.

In theory, within a week he should be history, but I'm not so sure he's the type to go quietly. He still has support amongst a significant segment of the population - especially amongst the Zulus, and if he manages to harness that support, I think he's capable of causing a lot of shit.

Who knows what happens next...

If anything this puts Juju in an extremely strong position, and he's definitely capable of causing a lot of shit.

The Hawks swooped today.

There were cops all over Joburg today, pouncing on various locations and arresting Zuptas. The game of thrones is getting interesting...

Are you going to miss him? Will he be leaving for the South of France?

What's going on here, Africa? That's 2 transfers of powers in the last couple of years that did not result in widespread machine gun wielding gangs roaming the countryside in protest.

Three actually - Angola, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

There's a new type of leadership now in place in Southern Africa.

It's possible to be optimistic.

Like with the Arab Spring?

I expect there will be more ' white flight' to Fulham.

Good for our national cricket team.

Except the ANC platform still calls for stealing white farms.

I guess they liked what they saw in Mugabe's Southern Rhodesia.
