Monkey Business

Election day is almost worse that the other time of the year we dread, giving in our Tax returns. Wednesday we had our election day and according to the newspapers everything ran smoothly. That is until the day after the elections.

Reports came in of IEC officials driving around with market ballots in their boot for a certain party that is known for trying everything in its power to rig the assumed fair elections. Ballots boxes went missing and reappearing filled with who knows. Even few voting stations were caught with there pants down by not having enough ballot papers. Fair election?

In South Africa the Politics work a bit different. Politicians are not a proud breed down in South Africa and they revert to dancing and signing along to catchy music to rally in the votes. Even the distribution of food and other goodies are seen as getting more votes.

Gladly I can say the Circus has left the town and won’t be coming around for the next three years.
