In Parliament recently, an ANC MP related the following account in praise of the President:-
“There was a father who gave a R100 note to each of his three sons and told them to buy something that would completely fill up a room.
The first son bought a load of hay for R100 – but couldn’t fill the room completely.
The second son bought a load of raw cotton for R100 – he also couldn’t fill the room completely.
The third son was wise and bought a candle for R1 – he lit it up and the room was completely filled with light.”
The proud MP declared: “Our President Jacob Zuma is like the third son. From the day he has taken charge of his office, our country is filled with the bright light of prosperity!”
After the thunderous applause died down,
a voice from the DA bench asked: “So, where is the remaining R99 ?”
