Oudtshoorn. 18 June 2012. 05h30. Nobody who has ever read OO can possibly doubt that I think the ANC a wretched and piteous and putrescible organisation.
Its fefnicute leaders are dubitable and its fuscous saltimbanco local Councillors are changelings, cretins, half-wits, morons, retards and thickos.
Sitting through a Council Meeting with the likes of that intellectual giant,Gordon April; and his drintling side kick, Vlancio Donson, in attendance, is the equavalent of watching Blackader episodes without the laugh track.
Opposing, by dearth of apposite adjectives, this sorry lot are the members of the Democratic Alliance, forever delivering Sisyphean five minute dustups while desperately scrambling for reasons not to govern.
Ye gods and faeries, deliver us from this malevolent agnosy; this ergodicity!
In their attempt to rid the administration of every able manager, the caders drove out Anél Berry, the surefooted PA to more Mayors and Municipal Managers than even she can muster to remember, earlier this year.
The DA snapped her up, in one of their rare moments of mavin savvy.
It’s the small things Anél does exceptionally well, like yesterday’s Father’s Day toddick; and it’s her perceptivity, that appears to represent some dim light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. It’s also the presence of late of an intelligent, witty, qualified, professional Conctituency Chair, Hannes Barnard, that confirms the flickering.
Whether this faint light is feint, and perchance a rather distant oncoming train, or merely a cacoethes, remains to be seen.
But while the ANC continues to obfuscate, obtenebrate and obscure, and the DA continues to shirk its responsibility by the people of Oudtshoorn, Hannes and Anél must be supported. Or we are doomed, to be sure.
For the moment, a thank you is all that is on offer. May much, much more follow. Very, very soon.
