Oh to be an ANC comrade, you can be accused of corruption, charged in court, refuse to step down and continue to cause chaos politically while not doing your job. Eventually your political bosses get tired of your ineptitude but instead of just dumping you, they 'redeploy' you to a provincial government post, where you can continue to cause chaos (and possibly corruption) and be incompetent. Nice work if you can get it (and have no morals or ethics).

I am a freelance cartoonist from South Africa. I draw daily editorial cartoons for our local daily newspaper as well as various other stuff.
In my free time I create collage, collect ephemera and all sorts of interesting but valueless stuff and am a somewhat erratic mail artist.
