Here is one of our greatest democratic levellers at work – Zapiro!~ If knowledge is power, and ignorance is bliss, let us also remind ourselves that a little knowledge is a (very) dangerous thing: step forward little Julius Malema, the littlest South African of all, despite the magnitude of his ego and the megalomia of his ambitions.

The exquisite mess the ANC is in as it ponders – that is to grace the proceedings with a dignity they do not remotely possess – whether to discipline, applaud, or simply cover up for the noxious junior politician and Breitling tenderpreneur – reveals how little is left of leadership and moral courage in the oldest liberation movement on the African continent.

This is not cause for celebration; it reason for serious people to rethink their politics.
