You know the joke…..
“What did South Africa use before candles? … Electricity!”
Well, maybe not so funny anymore!
Load shedding is back, as the lights go out,
And industry comes to a halt.
And who is to blame
For South Africa’s shame?
Jacob Zuma says its apartheid’s fault!
Electricity is vital for South Africa’s growth,
On it the future is riding;
When the nation needs to face
This Eskom disgrace,
Where’s Jacob Zuma? He’s gone into hiding!
The rest of the world looks on, disbelieving,
Moody’s look at another downgrade.
The government’s dysfunctional,
The president is culpable;
Why is Jacob Zuma still being paid?
The country takes no comfort that the lights will stay on
In the President’s Nklanda homestead.
It should seem arcane
That he won’t share the pain,
It’s time for Zuma to share more than his bed!
Power to the People
“Power to the people!?
Now we know that they were joking,
The ANC plus Eskom
Equals an economy that is choking…..”
“Corruption is not just about money and greed,
You can be corrupt in your thought, corrupt in your deed;
And what we’ve just seen in our Parliament
Is corruption being taken to its furthest extent…..”
