Description:

Imagine a man who supported virginity testing for girls; promoted deference of women before men as a sign of respect; questioned the constitutionality of bail; claimed that gay marriage was a disgrace before God; advocated prosecuting people even when the evidence against them was insufficient; believed the political party he represented was endorsed by God and that a vote against it would send you to hell; celebrated tyrants when they perverted democracy; advocated the beating of children in the name of discipline; defended Julius Malema as a future leader and Thabo Mbeki's dissident views on HIV/ Aids; argued that his party was more important than the Constitution; suggested that black people were defined by traditional African culture; believed that his party would govern until the end of days; regularly contradicted himself and reneged on his undertakings; paroled convicted criminals and defended his friendship with them; and regularly demonstrated an inability to take an ethical position on moral issues.

A man who believed that all women should be married and that children were good training for womanhood. Thought the Constitution granted minorities fewer rights than those in the majority; believed that pet dogs were un-African, as was the justice system, but encouraged people not to think like Africans in Africa; argued that prisons were unnecessary punishment and that crimes were better resolved through debate; was regularly corrected and reinterpreted by political handlers to make his gaffes more palatable; made unkept promises to appease whichever audience he was addressing; suggested that hair straightener was an attempt by black people to become 'white'; benefited from R250 million in public money spent on upgrading his private house; had friends who would land their private plane at a National Key Point for their own convenience; thought a shower minimised the risk of contracting HIV/ Aids; and blamed the media for an exaggerated and unfair public perception of his views. You are imagining the president of South Africa. His name is Jacob Zuma.
