Jimmy Manyi Must Stop Masturbating on Our Heads

We wish to clarify that The April 12 movement had put the issue of South Africa’s loan to Swaziland to bed. However, the recent intellectual masturbation of one Jimmy Manyi warrants response from us.

Mr Manyi, the very controversial Cabinet spokesperson whose mouth and vocal cords are rarely ever in sync with his brain, has come out to defend the decision of the Cabinet of the Republic by claiming that South Africa did not grant a loan to Swaziland but rather got a “guarantee backed by their SACU payments.”

As to what the difference between a loan, a bail out and a guarantee is, is an issue for complete intellectual ecstasy? It is not different from Manyi telling Swazis that he never has sex with his wife, they merely engage in “Mutually stimulating masturbation.”

The crux of the matter from the Swazis was the fact that Swaziland was given an economic lifeline by the South African government. Whether it was loan, a giveaway, a relief grant, whatever it may be, what Swazis know is that the South African government gave financial help to Swaziland without using that help to encourage them towards respecting human rights and setting out on a path towards better governance.

While Mr Manyi and his fellow “democratically elected” South African fat cats twist and spin the semantics of the deal, Swazis will continue to contend with the realities of living in a failed state where their human rights are trampled upon by a diabolic and backward system of governance which is based on principles of inequality similar to the Apartheid system.
