    Jacob Zuma's first 100 days

    What do you think of Jacob Zuma's first 100 days as President?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Well I will say it out loud. Nothing happened. Everything is still as it was 100 days ago. However the sin tax is a bit heavy now. But other than that I have nothing to report. The angry mobs are still angry, people are still complaining. Services like water and electricity is still on and off so everything is just as it was.

    Zuma is President?

    Oh is that why everybody is on strike and there is civil unrest; corruption, graft, crime and nepotism abounds and the electricity charges have gone through the roof, and the buses dont bus, trains dont train, roads dont road and my rates are five times they were this time last year to pay for things that I will never benefit from.........

    My 5 cents.
    He is a breath of fresh air compared too the previous guy.
    He has a lot to do so good luck President, I hope there are not too many bumps along the way.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    You are right! The only thing you have to look out for is dose tarn potholes when you go to work! The rest is easy.

    One of the things I like is he is turning up.

    As in turning up at dysfunctional municipalities, schools...
    There isn't that impression of a distant ivy-league President. He's shaken a few folk up that really needed it.

    Possibly the thing that troubles me the most is the size of the gravy train entourage. That's quite a big cabinet, and the civil service just seems to get more bloated all the time.

    It's a hefty bill to foot before you start putting money towards "service delivery." Yes, I know you need leaders, but that many? My experience is the bigger the committee, the less that gets done.
