“uOscar [Mabuyane] lo, ophethe le province. Sithi, ‘no looting aph’ePhondweni.’”
(“Oscar Mabuyane is in charge of this province. We say, ‘No looting in the Eastern Cape’”).
Boy, was this song way off the mark. To paraphrase a popular dictum: The looting is not over until the fat belly — judging by the Eastern Cape premier’s girth — sings. (As an aside, my own circumference leaves a lot to be desired. So, I really shouldn’t be body shaming. But no one is perfect).
