  • ANC public cake eating will stop


    ANC leaders will no longer eat cake in front of party supporters at centenary rallies, according to a report on Sunday.

    The matter was raised as part of ANC chairwoman Baleka Mbete's report on centenary celebrations held in Bloemfontein earlier this year, City Press reported.

    "It was proposed that for future January 8 celebrations the eating of cake should be made private, as it does not augur well to eat in front of our members and supporters while they are not eating," the assessment of the centenary celebrations found.

    African National Congress spokesman Jackson Mthembu told the newspaper that everyone in the national executive committee (NEC) agreed the public cake-eating culture should be reviewed.

    "The issue is how do you celebrate 100 years of the ANC with 150,000 people, when it comes to this area of eating cake?" he was quoted as saying.

    "How do we tweak this culture and make it less insensitive?"

    According to the report the cake proposal was first tabled at the NEC meeting in early February.

    In future, the cake will be displayed at the stadium, but will not be eaten in public.

    Mthembu told the newspaper the ANC was looking at alternatives such as donating the cake to orphanages and schools.

      I can't pretend to understand what it's like to ever have gone hungry but I'm sure it's a bigger issue to someone who does or has.

      Now that makes much more sense, tantalize and torture those starving members of the cANCer with a lavish cake that is just out of their reach and at the end of the proceedings take the cake away to be devoured in private by the cANCer's most obese hyenas

      Mthembu told the newspaper the ANC was looking at alternatives such as donating the cake to orphanages and schools.
      I will bet that any cake that gets donated is either leftovers or a far cry from the cake that the cANCer's hyenas have already devoured.

      They will still continue to eat the South African cake and all it's fruits in front of the voters and the voters will continue to vote for the fat cats.
