Hot air over Nkandla

Thingsare heating up nicely over the Nkandla report. The ANC is flip flopping, release the report, classify the report, which indicates that the chickens are running around the Nkandla chicken coop with their heads chopped off.  Unfortunately, the head that should be chopped probably wont be.

Weird and wonderful topics

Looking back on a week's worth of work, it always amazes me what crazy things our politicians get up to and what I have to draw to try and get a laugh out of them.

Flirting with justice

He admitted that he married another woman while already married.  He tampered with graves and was forced to rebury remains of his ancestors. However, the NPA finds that there is not enough evidence to prosecute ? Seems like with the right family name you can get away with anything!

obscene cats

Most of the comrades certainly didn't join the revolution to be poor and it shows.

Bully boys

These two cartoons were produced on consecutive days dealing with the same subject, the faceoff between Public Protector Thuli Madonsela and the govt. security cluster over the publication (or not) of the infamous Nakndla Report.  At the eleventh hour the top cartoon was pulled because it was deemed inappropriate to depict someone as a dog in African culture.  Personally, if our esteemed president would call of his attack dogs , there would be no cause to depict them in this guise. The bottom cartoon attempts to depict our brave PP taking on the intimidation and offensive posturing of our government leaders.

Cross patch

Bit of a weird situation where the people are boycotting voter registration in order to get themselves heard about poor service delivery. Surely you register and vote in order to get the government of your choice to sort out service delivery? I usually hate drawing such detailed cartoons but for some reason I quite enjoyed drawing this one. Pity to dump a speech bubble right on top.

Blowing up or blowing over?

Like all ANC scandals, this one is destined to become a damp squib as the public continues to suffer from corruption scandal overload.

the wheel turns

With the present discord between the various unions, I wonder if the ANC's election machinery is starting to seize up.

The high road

After his embarassing pronouncements on Malawi's public roads while trying to sell e-tolling to a sceptical electorate, now Zuma wants to build bridges with the rest of the continent. Talk about a verbal u-turn.

Cutting down a little

Let's see how long Pravin Gordhan's austerity measures last withvthe government fat cats.  Without political will they can just continue to loot as they wish.  The thought that this is just an election ploy continues to niggle and after elections none of these good intentions will be enforced. The best New Year resolutions generally don't last long.

A tongue lashing

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "tongue twister". Our trusty president lets his mouth run away again, showing great diplomatic skills and embarassing the whole country.

Be afraid, be very afraid!

First we had ghost posts, then ghost schools - now we have ghost pupils.  Will these SADTU criminals stop at nothing to cheat and connive and steal the future of our next generation by giving them a poor education?

Government asses

Talk about overloading.  Buffalo City Metro can't cope to service the greater Slummies area and now they have been forced to take a whole bunch of rural villages on board.  Its a guaranteed lose-lose situation.

The inmates are running the asylum

A scary story about a R 300 million reform centre that has become paralysed and totally dysfunctional because of infighting between two government departments.  This was the subject of an award winning expose by one of the Dispatch journalists.  Why must it take investigative journalism to bring this kind of thing to light. Unbelievable.

shut down

The obvious joke is that if the ANC government shut down, nobody would notice.

We need to clean house!

Can't believe the government's slack attitude to the Kenyan Mall incident and the whole situation where terrorists seemingly slip in and out of South Africa at will. Unless there is covert support for these vermin?

Playing games with my taxes

Can you credit this absolute waste of ratepayer's money.  This so called sports event included such sporting codes as fishing, pool, a fun walk, darts, table tennis, touch rugby and beach soccer.  Sounds suspiciously like a social event to me - and our illustrious mayor spent R 16 841 to attend as a spectator !

Sky High utilities

The cost of living just keeps on going up, unless you're a deployed cadre of course!

Party hearty

There are 4 million unregistered young voters who are driving the political parties bananas in the run up to next year's elections.  Bloody youth - just when you thought they were always ready to join a PAAARTEEE!

Protection from leaks

Civil society greeted the news that President Zuma was sending the controversial Secrecy Bill back to parliament with positive remarks.  It turns out that they will only relook aspects he highlighted - both sections, when re-written, will further protect the "classifiers" and do nothing to address the really contentious issues raised by all the Bill's critics. Say no more !

Back to Work

My trusty computer gave up the ghost so I had to beg and borrow to get my cartoons out. I wasn't able to get on the internet so, at last, here are the previous week's offerings.

vote of no confidence

Makes one worry when the head of the Independent Electoral Commission is fingered for corrupt activities - and then vocally defended by the ruling party.  Hello Zim!
