Real comedy

YOUNG Floyd Shivambo, wearing his ANC Youth League cap, tears into SA Communist Party deputy general secretary Jeremy Cronin, calling him all sorts of unsavoury names.

YOUNG Floyd Shivambo, wearing his ANC Youth League cap, tears into SA Communist Party deputy general secretary Jeremy Cronin, calling him all sorts of unsavoury names.

Shivambo's closest comrade, Julius Malema, berates the Young Communist League as lacking programmes and of responding to every inconsequential thing.

Then Shivambo resurfaces at the weekend, resplendent in the Young Communist League's red colours, and suddenly everything he might have said against the communists no longer holds.

You just have to love our politics. They show how little difference there is between the politicians and real-life soapie characters such as Khanyi Mbau and her lovers, who on one day tell all and sundry that they are done with "gold-diggers" and then run to the media declaring their undying love for each other the next.
