Way out for captured cronies

So, Cuba has a soft spot for the ANC. But I reckon Fidel Castro, the old man, would’ve added the rider that it was Mandela’s ANC his country supported, not the present one drowning in a turbulent sea of corruption, incompetence and arrogance.
But let’s give Zuma the benefit of the doubt and imagine Cuba and new leader Raul, still have feelings for the organisation, warts and all. I mean, our president considered attending Fidel’s funeral of more importance than facing up to the groundswell of opinion, including a goodly number of his stalwarts, that he is a useless president who has cost this country dearly in all aspects. He found a funeral abroad a safe haven among whom he believes are fellow comrades. So, in that sense, Cuba owes him.
Now if I were in his shoes (my toes curl just thinking about it) I would’ve taken my concubine and captured pals with me on board the Gupta Express, and sought asylum in Cuba. In all probability, he had invested his hard-earned millions in off-shore banks, including Havana, so no financial worries spending his last years away from those horrible South Africans who want to see him in prison.
What an ideal solution. He will leave behind a citizenry sighing with sweet relief and a cleansed ANC that has learned a hard lesson and this time around, will elect a proper leader. Together with a strong opposition, our country would be on the way to the promised rainbow nation.
Perhaps the young Castro will knock some sense into Jacob and his cronies. It’s a given he would not stand for any nonsense from the new refugees if he’s anything like his dad. Not be a bad thing for corrupt politicos to get a taste of what’s it’s like to live like commoners under the yoke of a communist government.
Zuma will soon become aware that Cuba has one of the highest incarceration rates in the world. So, he’d better pasop, and not heh-heh! when Raul speaks.
Back home, Nkandla could be transformed into an asset that’s meaningful to the poor community. A hospital, a good start; the swimming pool open to the public; the amphitheater for musical performances; the kraal with cattle to provide meat for the hungry.
Our gain, Cuba’s loss. What a pleasure.

Voting Poll
Finance minister Pravin Gordan says they considered a VAT increase for the 2017 budget, but that an increase should be fine-tuned so that poor people do not have to pay more. Are you willing to pay increased VAT on so-called ‘sin-items’ (alcohol, cigarettes, chocolates, confectionary, certain cuts of prime beef etc) and luxury goods so that basic items can be exempt or remain at 14%?
Yes, the privileged has a responsibility to pay for the poor.
