    Very interesting indeed. I wonder what this similar relationship is like in Mad Robert Mugabe’s Zimboland?

    Anyone with a lot of dirty linen to hide from the public has a difficult relationship with the press. Dictators, crooked politicians and similar kinds always try to “control the press”. It’s the only way they can keep their filthy deeds secret, and the public in the dark.
    Zuma’s predicament is hardly new; and his ham-handed attempts to muzzle the press are far from original. It’s just so sad that there are people willing to go along with it; who are happy to become co-conspirators in their own befuddlement.
    You can NEVER have a democracy without a free press. It’s NEVER happened anywhere before. Why is South Africa thought to be any different?
