Interesting what the Sports Minister said when he was talking about people buying ANC branch member loyalty: (this was taken off the Mail & Guardian)
“Try as much as possible to stay away from the dirty money. If you can’t avoid the temptation, chow the money and keep quiet. And when they come for their money, just say ‘siyibambile’ [we’ve got it].”
Here’s another one:
“People sing songs to redefine the theory of the struggle and not engage in debate. When you can’t engage in debate, the best thing you can do is to sing. The revolution is not about singing,” he said.”
Lastly, his comment on appointing leaders with no agenda, who sing instead of debate
“You must understand and characterise this particular period’s problem, because if you are just going to talk about names and do not speak politics you are going to have names, elect people and then, after Mangaung, those people don’t have an agenda.
“They start going up and down, crisscrossing the country like K-Ci and JoJo [an R&B duo from the United States]. They are singing because they don’t have a vision.”
Disclaimer: I find it prudent that I put this disclaimer here. I am not involved with politics, nor am I on a spree of some sort against any of our political leaders. I read a lot of things, most relating to technology and politics. I then quote what I find interesting or even funny, on my blog.
