This doesn't need to be a long post. The thought is simple. South Africa's President Jacob Zuma has called for a national discourse on morality. If ever there was audacity and blatant opportunism, this is it. His own Zulu cultural group have vilified him for serial affairs outside of the 'lust-protection' afforded by polygamy. They have publicly said that what he's done is not to be found within the Zulu cultural framework.
Zuma, having been pilloried - now wants to get white South Africans in the main to be 'more sensitive' to 'cultural' issues. Even when your own people give it the lie? You are a fraud, sir! With or without your thuggish blue light brigade.
You cannot and will not ever command respect among thinking people - which is why you wish to demand it. You are an embarrassment.
What a travesty when the national discourse surrounding an about-to-be 68 year old is more about his penile predations than his political policies.
Zuma has single-handedly made us a laughing stock. Nice legacy.
