Fwd: Zuma had the Vooma, but the girl kuluma: Angifuna, my Induna! 2006

Much to my consternation, I was greeted yesterday by the
sounds of cheering and hooters blowing, only to be informed
that Zuma has now officially been proclained innocent,
after having been the subject of formidable arguments and

much heated debated.

However, what I found ironic was the judge’s referral to
the girl having shown signs of sexual trauma in the past,
while not acting as a typical rape victim, which in itself
is contradictory. By the way, what are the prerequisites

for the behaviour of a typical rape victim anyway, if
incidentally I may ask such? Furthermore, it is ironic that
the judge should state the girl showed signs of having been
sexually traumatised in the past, yet stating that she had

made previous false rape allegations. If she had indeed
been sexually traumatised in the past, why would the rape
allegations have been false? I say, if this is a case of
money talks, then give me some of those green backs or for

most men that consider similar actions, first wait to be
elected to parliament before considering such.

Then again maybe Zuma did really love the girl and that is
why he was willing to have unprotected sex with her, as he

loved her unconditionally despite her HIV status. In that
case it is sad that there would have been such a gross
misunderstaning, also his actions, had it been sincerely
motivated, are then not such a total miscarriage of

justice, but rather an immense tragedy, as he may have had
a bit of PLEASURE, but will now have to repent now at
LEISURE. Although constitutionally he has been acquitted,
it is as good as if he had signed his own death sentence,

by having sexual relations with an AIDS infected girl.

However, if the rights of the girl is to be considered, the
fact that her dignity was not upheld, due to the outcome of
the trial and the less than kindly remarks by insensitive

members of the public, could almost be described as a
perversion of justice. One comment I want to make about
Zuma is that he never at any time made any adverse comments
about the girl concerned, but rather attempted to express

his commitment to her and the fact is that for him it was
not a casual encounter as he had viewed theirs as a serious
relationship of some sorts.

In any event, Zuma was and is still smiling. If he had a
good time while he was at it, it still shows by the

expression on his face. This is not something he will
attempt againg in a hurry, for all you lady fans out there.
For Zuma my sincere advice would be that the next time he
intends on having sexual relations with a woman he better

get a signed consent form first or a recording granting
permission or at the very least have one or two witnesses
present to acknowledge consent, that is if he may not view
it a bit perverse having an audience. But for a man with

his political influence, he should be quite used to having
an audience by now, although maybe not in That sense of the
word. As the case may be, I really hope he did enjoy it at
the time for all the trauma he has had to endure.

Although my sympathy is inclined towards both Zuma and the
girl concerned as having been an alternative to soap operas
for a period of time, the danger lies in that many men may
now feel compelled or justified to bed overnighting family

acquaintances if they dress anything less than
appropriately, as, after all, if Zuma can get away with it,
why can’t they? This may set a precendent that could
encourage divergent bebaviour that otherwise may have been

discouraged had Zuma been guilty, as charged. So, I say
girlfriends, if you plan on overnighting, don’t forget
those long sleeve pajamas, slippers, mittens and woolly
hats. Oh, and a few curlers in the hair might also help so

as not to create the wrong impression.

Although the whole affair seems to me like an unfortunate
misunderstanding, I wish for males not to take advantage of
women as a result of the outcome of this trial. Thus should

be considered if the judge had really only considered
justice for one and not justice for all, for who knows what
behaviour this may still enduce, especially in the more
sexually depraved members of our society. To Zuma’s credit

can be said that the girl had been a close acquaintance and
that he had not used physical violence, although there was
some forced penetration. Maybe had there been some foreplay
the girl would have had a chance to decline his propoasal

or who knows, she may have even changed her mind and
instead of a rape trial we may have seen wedding bells for
the new Mrs Zuma instead on TV.

Sadly, what has happened, happened, yet, this being a
democratic country, the matter has now officially been

deliberated and resolved, unlike Swaziland where it is fair
game for the king to abduct a school girl to take as his
wife, whether she likes it or not. Also, although this may
be a third world country, we are now truely not far behind

the Americans, condering what Bill Clinton got up to:
nudge, nudge, wink, wink…say mo more.

Anyway, to make a long story short, what with Zuma having
had two widely publicized trials in close succession, I am

sure that he has now gained enough female admirers to pick
and choose, but may refuse so as not again his dignity to
lose.
