The Cabinet of Jacob "Oopsie" Zuma.





The Tower Of Babel. S
ay again? מגדל בבל

Government should be lean and mean.

In this case, we have jobs for pals. 34 people in total, really, why not 340 or 3400, like in China. Provide everybody with a BMW and a guaranteed pension and "Bob is your Uncle".


The expectations of the ANC voters are sky high, so the pressure is on.


Expectations of others: no changes, increase in expenditure, higher inflation. Take from the people and give to the people.

But it will keep everybody busy for a while.
