ebola blobe

Debate is raging about the stopping of visas by the Australian government to visitors from Ebola hit countries in West Africa. I personally applaud the Australian government for protecting it's citizens. Pity the same can't be said for our country with it's porous borders. Ask any of our Northern neighbours who slip through daily - how long will it be before Ebola decides to visit?

His master's flunkeys

This one got away from me a bit.  Once all the editorial comments were made, the whole thing had changed quite a bit. I thought my other concepts were better but I'm not the boss.

Feeling really Teed off

What could've been a real good news story for the local government gets destroyed by uselss and corrupt management and workers. Google Magwa tea estates and read the whole sordid, sorry story. Now they want to waste more money on a dead project. Crazy!

Flagship airline

A billion reasons not to fly South African Airways.  So the Minister of Public Enterprises cans the whole of the SAA board, except for Zuma's two comrades. A billion Rand in debt and another govt bailout looming. Pass the air sickness bag, chief.

Economy Class

Minister Nene has said he would slash government spending. Well, tell that to the political high flyers who insist on flying business class. One wonders if their egos will fit into economy class seats.

Door to door service

Good luck to Oscar in his new home.  I think he deserves to stay there for quite a while. Let's hope he doesn't try and do a runner!

explosive meeting

Cosatu is busy with a showdown meeting to decide it's future and whether to expel NUMSA.  Poor Uncle Cyril has the unenviable task of trying to keep the anticipated split in check.  This is a difficult type of cartoon to draw as the meeting is still in progress and one has to make some sort of anticipatory yet telling comment. Let's see if the whole thing blows up or not.

Economic cycle

It's the mid term budget tomorrow and a debut for our new Finance Minister, Nhlanhla Nene. It's bound to be a balancing act and a juggling act and the result looks certain to be a shortfall with no safety net!

You've got to be in it, to Winnie't !

What a chancer, Nelson Mandela's ex is now challenging his estate so that she can get her hands on his house in Qunu and other assets.  She claims that both the marriage certificate and the divorce papers were forged.  Well then, no legal marriage then, so no windfall, or should that be winniefall.  As the old struggle saying goes : A loota continua.

Fallen by the wayside

Typical of our government to throw money at social development projects and then not monitor or manage them. No accountability, no problem.  This is how NOT to uplift people.

greedy grabber

Winnie, Winnie... I don't think you're going to win this one.  Why wait until now to make these claims.  Like a bunch of vultures trying to grab what they can.  It's that old entitlement thing again. The mugger of the nation.

non delivery

They've been on strike for going on 10 weeks.  Surely they could've got things sorted (post office pun) by now ?

strange bedfellows

As the old saying goes, "You're judged by the company you keep".  The womanising pastor is in trouble and is looking for moral support from the ANC.  Ha Ha Ha !

Piece of trash

The lady doth protest too much. She's only doing her job ? Another piece of deployment trash dumped on us by the ANC government. Clean up Buffalo City!

Jumping through.... whoops!

South Africa's parliamentary circus continues with the young lions of the EFF call up to face the ANC dominated Powers and Privileges Committee. Instead of jumping through hoops they decided to walk off stage, leaving the parly speaker somewhat upstaged.

School bus(t)

The headline reads:"Bus budget cuts out pupils". Due to possible corrupt practises added to poor planning and mis-manangement, 39 000 young rural scholars will have to walk to school and back every day. These kids are the future of our country - do we want to end up with another generation of uneducated, unemployable citizens, Mr. Zuma ? Or are you going to miss the bus again?

Flat economy

Old grumpy grouch Gwede Mantashe has been having a go at business investors, accusing them of going on strike against the economy. What he ignores is the fact that the top heavy, corrupt government is affecting the economic bottom line.

fall from grace

I don't often draw sports themed cartoons but in honour of the Springbok with that stopped the All Blacks 22 game winning streak, here we go.

in a flat spin

South African Airways is owned by the state and therefore is subsidized by the taxpayer.  For the past few years they have received literally billions of rand to keep flying.  To add insult to injury, SAA flights are expensive and of course the in flight bag of peanuts really leaves you feeling like you're being treated like a monkey.
