You can only laugh. The only issue nowadays is whether you are laughing at the blatant arrogance and corruption of the most senior officials in South Africa (no use getting upset, because ministers in Parliament will tell you that if you don’t like it, you should leave the country) or idiots still talking about “progress” since 1994.
Here you have Bheki Cele, National Police Commissioner, who was found guilty of maladministration and improper conduct by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela (probably because she was not in on the deal) in a R500m lease for police headquarters in Pretoria.
So what does Cele do? He organises a raid of the Public Protector’s office by his crime “intelligence” unit. Sounds like Zuma telling the world that the National Prosecuting Authority reports to him, during his corruption trial. And demanding respect as president.
I wonder how long this news item will be in the public domain before it is quietly squashed.
