The Rainbow Nation

Yet another excellent cartoon stolen from Jonathan Shapiro - aka Zapiro

It'll be interesting to see what happens when the world cup is over, all those stadiums and roads being built.

Most of the roads were already there as that is one thing the 'apartheid' Government did very well - they are just very potholed now. Aparently the Premier of KZN had a road built to his 'rural' retreat costing in excess of R5m, but they can't find R500 to fill a pothole in his capital city of Durban.

The stadia will be used as some of the well known ones are getting old, are sited in the wrong part of town or will be used for the masses to watch their favourite sport (and allow the rate paying citizens to watch their's with out having to share sites).

What is of interest is what the ANC/COSATU/SACP coilition is going to do once the eyes of the world are no longer focused on them......nationalisation of the mines and banks, removing constraints on the OCR and hence rapid devaluation of the Rand??

We should simply re-colonise the place at the point of a gun. Screw the "rainbow nation" because it's a sham. And while we're at it, let's take back Rhodesia and give those poor bastards (black and white) a decent life again.
The Chinese are going to do it anyway and that'll make the blacks long for white colonial rule again.

kg -too true. The people had a better life under 'white' rule. African Democracy just does not work, it creates kleptocratic Presidents-for-life and a hoard of murderous sycophants.
