The other day I was stuck in traffic on the M3 and a heard several sirens screaming up behind me. Traffic was bumper to bumper but we all dutifully squirmed to the side of the road to let the ambulance/fire truck/even police car through. But no! It was Mr Mbeki's motorcade.
I don't give a shit if he had important things to do (I don't even especially want him to "do things"). I'm on his side in the conspiracy against Zuma, but this did not endear him to me.
