When chickens come home to roost

In less than three months' time it will be christmas and we will be losing our heads with all the fun and boozing that goes along with it. The ANC conference is approaching quickly and blood is starting to smell in the air. Earlier on, there was an expose` on Dr. "Do Little", Manto Tshabalala Msimang- The National Minister of Health. Due to the sterling work of the Sunday Times we now know the she has a tendecy to be kleptomaniac and she takes her cognac with relative ease. No wonder we had been a laughing stock of Nations when coming to the HIV pandemic . The minister had not been soberly considering the consequences of her talk about beetroot and all those cynical concotions for she had been, at most, drunk.

On the other front Cosatu had come out in the open that it is going to support the embattled JZ (Zuma) in the upcoming ANC conference. I am waiting with bated breath . In the first month of his presidency South Africa will go down ten points on business ethics barometer and the women's rights advocacy groups will have an uphill battle when cultural conservatives like JZ and company takes centre stage for take old-fashioned views on women. What is also of importance is that deputy health minister who had seen unceremonious exit from the cabinet and the NPA boss who was suspended over this past long weekend. Do I see a common threat running through all this developments. Hugh!! It's tense, frightening and yet enjoyable. Watch the space...
