Helen Zille hits below the belt
Talk about cheap politicking. The DA must be taking notes from those megawatt bullshitters over at the ANCYL. The media, with some help from the DA, decided that to produce a kid Jacob Zuma had to have had unprotected sex. Hate to break this to you but sometimes condoms break. It happens. Unless Helen Zille, Leader of the Democratic Alliance, happens to be a webcam buddy with either of the two people involved I suspect it is unlikely she should know what really went down. So to speak.
Yet she categorically states that “President Jacob Zuma’s behaviour directly contradicts the government’s campaign against multiple sexual partners, and the inherent AIDS risk in having unprotected sex.” She conveniently brings up the rape charges from which Zuma was acquitted in a court of law. So far I haven’t noticed anybody in the media calling her on this issue. We happily jumped the band wagon and as it stands most of the country now believe Zuma has unprotected sex with everything in a skirt while in fact nobody can be certain that that is the case.
Shame on Zille for jumping to conclusions that suit her politically when clearly her statement cannot be collaborated. And on the media for republishing it without at least calling on her to back up her claims.
