Agang Skothane


KAK. We love a bit of spin, but calling Mamphela Ramphele a skothane after she publicly declared her wealth last week (and challenged JZ to do the same) is what we like to call taking the high horse on the low road.

“Together with South Africans, the ANC has been part of a progressive body of opinion in our society that believes in the need to inculcate values of humility and service amongst our people; discouraging the so-called izikhothane tendencies as demonstrated yesterday. The solutions to the challenges facing our country will not come from misguided populism but a dedication to the task at hand to build a better life for all.” Straight up KAK!
