Operation Zuma and Elon Musk.

Secrecy please

It is so good to see what is going on in South Africa at this time. There is a concerted effort to get our president Jacob Zuma to stand down and allow someone else to take control of the country. This is probably the most corrupt and deceitful president South Africa has ever had. A great friend and confidant of Robert Mugabe who brought his country to it's knees while in power and now it may turn out exactly the same for South Africa. But there is one fundamental difference, Mugabe was forced out of power and South Africans know it. Pasopa wena Zuma, Which means "Be careful you Zuma" in the local language, you will not succeed in the same way.
Operation Zuma Musk style

Okay onto other more amusing observation. Elon Musk named his early January launch of his Falcon 9 rocket "Operation Zuma." How revealing. The payload was a military payload but everything about it was kept secret. What has surprised me the most about all this is that no one has picked up on the Jacob Zuma connection and the fact that Elon Musk was in fact raised here in South Africa. Well done Elon, from Geoff in South Africa. I really do like this man and his sense of humor has me in stitches often.

  1. I woke up this morning and switched on the television, tuned into the BBC News channel and got the hugest surprise. President Jacob Zuma has resigned. Who would have thunk of such a thing.
    This won't change anything however, the corruption in the country won't go away, it's too easy for people in power to get away with bribery and demanding money with Absolutely No Consequences. It's sad in a way considering the fact that more than 25% of the working population is unemployed. Oh well, life goes on.
    Blessings and love from Geoff in South Africa.
