Minister of Politics

This character is a satirical take on the ruling political party of South Africa- the ANC, who have, in the last few years, shown themselves to be selfish, corrupt, apathetic and largely ineffective, in governing the country. There is no better example of this than the hugely controversial e-Toll gantries, which is nothing less than the aggressive privatisation of Johannesburg’s highways, that should have already been paid for by the fuel levy. The ANC ‘loses’ R30 billion a year to corruption, so asking the citizens of SA for a cent more is really pushing it. This satirical sketch adds its voice of dissent to the massive public outrage against this short-sighted project which will have a massive negative social impact. This sketch has received some great feedback on YT, with some people thinking it may even be an authentic PSA from government.
