Poor old Sandile Memela. He tries so hard. He writes a column in the Mail & Guardian (called Ancestral Whisperings) where he also leaps to the defence of the indefensible and turns his only eye fiercely on anyone who dares criticise the ANC.
His last column spluttered on about how journalists and analysts (or at least those criticising his man Mbeki) are "paid for sell outs".
Don't worry, though. When you say BOO to him he doesn't respond.

Bravo! The phrase "We are not amused" springs to mind. I wonder what Queen Victoria would have said?
