Absurdity of the Day
We're well used to Jon Qwelane, but this guy takes ridiculous commentary to a whole new level. The columnist, who goes under the moniker Loose Canon, writes for the Sunday Standard in Gaberone, Botswana.

Sunday's effort berated South African whites, saying that they can "count themselves lucky they were not shot on the day of liberation. Perhaps it's not too late to hang a few whites... just to remind them who is in charge". More wisdom from this idiot outlined his Jacob Zuma, with the reasoning:

"The people love Jacob Zuma... but, as part of sorting out ungrateful white people, I want him to embark on a redistribution exercise. I want him to distribute white women among the long-suffering black chaps.

"Zuma can have one or two white women himself and then distribute the rest 'to his loyal supporters' - including Loose Canon himself".

Utterly bizarre...
