  • OPINION: The real brutality of Nkandla

    As police minister Nathi Nhleko continued his ridiculous attempts to justify not only the Nkandla spending but his whitewashed report into it, South Africans were introduced to a Soweto man named Bongani Mazibuko. While the politician who is prone to excessive sweating sweated over the details – the upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s private home cost R216-million, not R246-million, he claimed, not for the first time – Bongani was mourning the death of his father Bheki, whose face stared back at him from the pages of newspapers and websites. Bongani Mazibuko apparently didn’t have the R20 a hospital was demanding to treat his father, a pensioner suffering chest pains and battling to breathe. Bongani said he was R5 short and ran outside the hospital to beg for the balance, asking nearby vendors and taxi drivers to help him.
