Tech deals

President Jacob Zuma does not have to pay for Nkandla’s R246-million security upgrades, including its ‘fire pool’, chicken run, kraal, and soil retention wall.

The firepool I understand – number one needs a watery place to hide when the raging fires of KZN come and the low-water pressure of the area means you cannot extinguish the now on-fire chickens running around the property. (There’s a Nando’s ad in there somewhere.)

The kraal is also important, as it keeps Nkandla’s cows from trampling foreign presidents on state visits. Why are there cows there in the first place? Because nothing softens up G8 leader better than feeding a bovine some grass and lasciviously patting its udders.

I can’t comment on the soil retention wall, a.k.a amphitheatre, as my knowledge of the need to hold up large piles of dirt is limited. Apparently it doubles as an emergency assembly point for Zuma’s family – in case the firepool is otherwise occupied.

But enough with Nkandla – bad jokes can only take away so much of the utter disbelief.
