Gedleyihlekisa will get you!

2012-04-22 13:43:33.0 | Reader Review |

THE ANC has finally defeated the ANC Youth League. We told you Jacob Zuma was a veteran when it comes to factional wars.

Zuma is like Mike Tyson - he uses every tactic to defeat his opponents, even biting an ear.

That is why his name is Gedleyihlekisa (bump off while smiling). Within a few weeks, he has knocked down Bheki Cele and Julius Malema.

They join Mo Shaik, Gibson Njenje and Jeff Maqetuka, who thought they could manipulate the NIA to fight Zuma.

Just wait a few days. Phil Molefe of SABC News will also join those on the floor and Zwelinzima Vavi will be on the ropes because he is campaigning for Kgalema Motlanthe while his boss Sdumo Dhlamini campaigns for Zuma.

You might see Zuma giggling but he's ruthless. He's not an intellectual but he's cunning. Ask Thabo Mbeki, Sbu Ndebele, Jeff Radebe, the late Harry Gwala and Thami Zulu.

If Motlanthe doesn't stop his ambition, come 2014 Blade Nzimande will be deputy president. Thandi Modise must also forget it - Malusi Gigaba will be deputy secretary-general.
