In our generation, we have been privileged to have a Nelson Mandela.
Now we have a Thuli Madonsela ™. She is the Public Protector, and because of her, I can sleep a little bit more securely.
I have been less than complimentary in the past about her appearance and hairstyle. But I have just sat watching her press conference about the leaked Nkandla Report on the alleged abuse of State funds on the President’s private dwelling.
This cookie has courage. And she has the intellect to go with it.
It’s such a pity that we do not have more of her calibre. What a pleasure to listen to someone who can articulate her thoughts, have solid arguments and display a fine knowledge of the legal situation. She even smiles occasionally and presents a veiled sense of humour.
You see, Mr Lunnon, don’t judge a book by its cover. Appearance is not everything.
I hope she sleeps with her eyes open. She will need protection!
She’s got the balls!
Thuli for President ™, I say!
