Litany of Zumaesque nonsensical responses in parliament
Errol Horwitz, Fresnaye
With the EFF boycotting the session, the usual disagreeableness between the ANC and opposition parties was less evident, but even by Wonderland standards more confusing. Confusing because Zuma’s extemporaneous responses to questions demonstrated a fundamental lack of understanding of the challenges facing South Africa.
Like Alice at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, opposition MPs were subjected to a litany of Zumaesque, absolutely nonsensical responses to important questions. His asinine remarks deprecating the validity of a downgrade on the country’s sovereign debt by rating agencies, is indicative of an ignorant man.
He simply does not understand their influence on all sectors of the economy. To him ratings agencies are symptomatic of a nefarious Western conspiracy to undermine the Brics alliance.
Zuma exemplifies a man delusively content who, to paraphrase George Bernard Shaw, knows nothing, but believes he knows everything.
