First sign of a dictatorship is when the politicians start interfering with the Police activities. The Hawks are flying scared and in disarray.

Festive smoke and mirrors

Well, the dope smoking King of the Abathembu has done a complete turnaround. The so-called King, who called Zuma a zulu boy and a liar, and famously turned his back on the ANC by joining the opposition DA, is now sucking up to the president. Possibly he's trying to turn around the 15 year jail sentence hanging over his royal head.

ANC vision

Performing oversight but refusing to see the problems.  Old grumpy guts Gwede insists that the cadres in BCM are innocent until the ANC integrity commission finds otherwise. Yeah right, Another Nepotistic Crony.

the glow of privilege

Zuma says we have good things to celebrate in 2014.  Tell it to the people without lights, water, jobs, sanitation, dignity or hope.  A good reason to celebrate would be if you paid back the damned money!

Unqualified Liar

So she thinks it's over because she resigns.  She has obviously learnt from the Number one denialist, Jacob Zuma, just deny everything long enough and people forget and the whole thing goes away.  Well it wont. Nkandla is still there and the DA is there, taking Ms Tshabalaliar to court for lying under oath to the parliamentary committee. Liar, liar, pants on fire!

putting out fires

Poor old Cyril seems to be taking strain.  Our President seems to be taking care of Number One by dumping all the tough jobs on his deputy. Watch out, soon he might take on the big job !

worldbeater beauty

Rolene Strauss was crowned Miss World recently.  Far from being a dumb bimbo, she is intelligent, classy as well as beautiful.  Although many people disparage "beauty pageants", why belittle someone who is making the most of their god-given assets. You go girl!

dictator in the making

Our beloved "leader in red" has been elected as CIC of the EFF.  Nobody in the organization may dissent or cause trouble, unless it involves parliament and the youthful yobbo himself.

shocking solution

No wonder they call it "darkest Africa".  The "great leader" is really feeling in the dark to try and obscure his party's mismanagement and corruption.  The old apartheid card is getting really worn out now.

nature hazard

Not all the cartoons I draw are based on politics or even national stories.  This story comes from the small coastal town of Port Alfred where the local golfers wanted to get rid of the Egyptian geese that had invaded the course.  However, as it is situated within an urban area, the police were not too happy about any random shooting.  Now they are looking at plan B.

deafening silence

In any other civilized country, if there is a problem that is causing an outcry by the people and devastating the economy, the minister in charge would resign in shame. Welcome to South Africa where our illustrious minister of energy maintains an embarassing silence in the face of the Eskom crisis.  Shame on you Tina Joemat-Pettersson!

It's criminal

Want to pull the perfect crime ? Come to South Africa - you literally can get away with murder.

good grief

It's a real shame - the government (using my taxes) gives him R53 million a year on which he lives. Now he is broke, can't even afford groceries or school fees. What a royal scam - get a job!

lights out

Just so ironic that BCM makes a big splash of switching on the Festive street lights (paid for by us disgruntled ratepayers, but that's another story) at the same time as Eskom whacks us with load shedding in the lead up to the festive season. Lightness and joy ? I think not.

A year has past since Madiba passed on.  He continues to throw a long shadow over the country and puts our current politicians into a rather diminished persepective. He was a unifier of people and is sorely missed by all South Africans, black and white.

out of touch

The CEO of SALGA, the South African Local Government Association, is reported in the press as receiving an annual salary of over R 3.5 millon.  His basic salary alone sees him earning more than the President of South Arica (R 2.6 million).  This is, of course, in the face of government belt-tightening and the shambolic condition of most of the municipalities that fall under Xolile George's responsibility. Just another connected comrade in protected employment, riding roughshod over the poor and needy in this country.

Coup de Grace

Amazing Grace - three months to earn a Phd.  Dairy maid, farmer, secretary, shopper extraordinaire, and now - POLITICIAN. Seems like character assasination and unwarranted attacks come naturally.
