South African President Zuma Has Trouble Counting.
Imagine living in a country where he is the President. Makes our political elite look smart, but it’s all relative.
Zuma ridiculed by former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson. See the video at the link.
South African President Jacob Zuma features in a show that promises to be a huge success. He is not depicted as a figure worthy of respect, but as someone who can’t manage basic counting. Motoring journalist Jeremy Clarkson’s Grand Tour included an early stop in South Africa, where his team saw an easy opportunity to crack jokes at Zuma’s expense.
The quips, in turn, have been reported on in the international media, painting South Africa as a crime-infested country run by a corrupt, uneducated president.
South Africa was a European outpost at the southern tip of Africa. Australia is a European outpost at the southern tip of Asia. There are differences, but also some lessons.
