Zuma-EFF cabal’s moral outrage at Cyril buying power is a load of effluent

We know Ramaphosa outspent Dlamini-Zuma at Nasrec, and honestly, think about what we’d be if he hadn’t

Columnist

Spare a thought for the Zuma cabal and its allies in the EFF. If they are outraged to the point of spontaneous combustion by the discovery that Cyril Ramaphosa paid people to help get him elected, imagine the shockwave that is about to sweep through their joint WhatsApp group when they discover that water is wet. 

Just so I’m being very clear, that was sarcasm. I don’t actually believe that they are going to be shocked by discovering that water is wet. I’m also not sure we can assume that they will make that discovery: when you work for Jacob Zuma or Julius Malema, water is whatever they tell you it is. It might be wet, but it might also be dry, or a plot by “White Monopoly Capital”. 

Mostly, however, I don’t really believe that anyone in the Zuma-EFF marriage of inconvenience is shocked by the news that a politician has acted like a politician. I was exaggerating for effect. And so are they. ..
