The obtuse X-president

what have I done wrong? ~ you have raped, lied and looted ~ with your bankrupt soul —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Zuma’s ANC creates desolate poverty

new ANC’s greed ~ does what Apartheid couldn’t do ~ it destroys our dreams

The vulgar greed of our leader/s: South Africa June 2017

ANC stalwarts ~ how could you let this happen? ~ our land is broken

Zuma legacy

after two decades ~ townships a reality ~ but it should not be

South Africa: enough is enough!

our message is clear ~ but our leaders remain deaf ~ rotten to the core

In memory of the giants: South Africa, April 2017

you can loot the state ~ but you cannot loot our souls ~ as we rise as one

We stand with you Khwezi

four brave young women

stood mutely against our scourge

‘man’-handled again . . .

Pretoria/ANC heartbreak

our city’s burning

Zuma-crony corruptness

tearing us apart

South Africa held hostage

broken ANC

an insincere president

we’re all April fools

Thank you Mr President

greed and arrogance

the deceit of a nation

too painful to grasp

Voice of the nation

can you hear us now?

not too much to laugh about

time to make a change
