South Africa’s most widely recognised and revered slayer of the proverbial sacred cow, Pieter-Dirk Uys, continues with the antics of his iconic alter ego, Evita Bezuidenhout.
Desperate First Ladies is Evita’s latest swirl through South African politics in which she gleefully skewers the sitting ducks in Parliament with satirical barbs. Uys has Bezuidenhout share the stage with a host of other outspoken, iconic women from all walks of life. These include Cape Malay Democratic Alliance firebrand Mrs Petersen, former first lady of Libya Madame Gaddafi, Mother Teresa (who is manning the telephone exchange in heaven), outrageous kugel Nowell Fine and Evita’s vicious blonde sister and notorious black sheep of the family, Bambi Kellermann.
