“Brief Intercourse Took Place While We Were Standing” – Six SA Politicians’ Excuses For Cheating


It’s been a rough weekend for Cyril Ramaphosa, with details of his infidelities the talk of the country.

You can find those details HERE, although if Cyril is to be believed it’s really part of a large smear campaign to discredit his presidential aspirations.

The deputy president had his PR team on the allegations immediately, but other local politicians haven’t handled their sexual misdemeanours with quite as much panache.

Feast your eyes on these six politicians and their attempts to wriggle off the hook via Huff Post SA:

Kebby Maphatsoe:

A picture of the deputy minister of defence and military veterans — in his full glory — made the rounds on social media in October 2016.

The nude picture appeared to have been taken by a person — assumed to be a woman, whose legs are in the image.

Maphatsoe told Sunday World: “I started receiving calls from comrades, asking ‘did you see this thing on social media platforms?’” “Fortunately, I have thick skin,” he said.

“I will not sue or press criminal charges. I’m a Christian and I’m from a Christian background, so I’m not vindictive.”

The religious wriggle – classic.

Malusi Gigaba:

The news of Gigaba’s affair with New York-based stylist, Buhle Mkhize, came out in 2015 — resulting in public spats between Mkhize and Gigaba’s wife Nomachule.

In a statement, Gigaba, who was then the minister of home affairs, said: “The source of this defamation has developed an unhealthy obsession with my family. I can only blame myself for befriending a person who had sinister motives.”

If by befriending you mean sleeping with then sure.

Zwelinzima Vavi:

In 2013, then general secretary of Cosatu, Vavi, was accused of rape by Jacqueline Phooko, who worked at the federation’s headquarters.

Vavi denied the claims, saying the sex with Phooko was consensual.
He describes one such encounter: “I did lock her office door but only to ensure that no one else could come in. Brief intercourse took place whilst we were standing. At no stage did she ask me to stop.”

Asked by Carte Blanche why he hadn’t deleted texts he shared with Phooko, he said: “I thought I had deleted them for some reason, but I didn’t.”

There’s nothing funny about rape accusations.

Fikile Mbalula:

In 2011, the then sports minister reportedly had an affair with model Joyce Molamu — who later claimed Mbalula impregnated her.

After initially denying the affair, Mbalula later admitted to it and apologised.

He responded: “I have been trying to deal with this matter in a private manner for the past three months and when it became clear to me that this woman was prepared to extort money from me, I then decided to cease all communication with her as I was not prepared to be blackmailed.”

…He added: “This thing was a one-night stand‚ and it happened just like that. It so happens that I regret that.”

Sounds like just the tip of the iceberg.

Jeff Radebe:

In May, the minister in the presidency is said to have requested nude pictures from government photographer Siyasanga Mbambani.

The Sunday Times reportedly had in its possession explicit texts from the presidential hopeful to Mbambani, saying “C.L.I.T is requested” — which some believed referenced her clitoris.
“Let me see there,” Radebe stated in another text, further asking her to “take one [picture] down [there].”

Through his spokesperson, Radebe said he “deeply regrets that the exchanges took place in the first place”.

0/10 for your sexting game, Jeff.

President Jacob Zuma:

In 2010, it emerged that Zuma had fathered a child with his friend Irvin Khoza’s daughter, Sonono.

Sonono was 39 at the time [Zuma was 68 at the time].

Zuma apologised, saying he deeply regretted his actions that put a lot of pressure on his family and the ANC.

“I have over the past week taken time to consider and reflect on the issues relating to a relationship I had outside of wedlock,” he said in a statement. “…I also acknowledge and understand the reaction of many South Africans. I deeply regret the pain that I have caused to my family, the ANC, the alliance and South Africans in general.”

Sure you deeply regret it, JZ.

And then there’s Fezekile “Khwezi” Kuzwayo – you might have moved on, Jacob, but the people never forget.

It’s not just politicians who can’t keep it in their pants – sports stars, celebs etc are also often caught in such scandals – but they weren’t elected to public office.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…

Planet Earth has indicated through global warming the most visible sign of climate change. According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), over the last century, sea levels have risen by between 10 and 25 centimeters, and carbon dioxide—the main cause of the greenhouse effect—is responsible for 85% of the increase in the Earth’s temperature over the last 10 years. To stop this negative effect and preserve the ozone layer, here are a few ways to check air pollution; Prevent bush burning In some rural areas bush burning is an easy way to prepare farmlands for cultivation.
