Leave this kind of nonsense to Fikile Mbalula, please.
At least he knows he’s the court jester and we are laughing at him, not with him.
The one-time Minister of Police branded himself ‘Mr Fearfokol’ during his time in charge of law enforcement before Bheki Cele took over.
It’s the latter who came under fire during a question-and-answer session in parliament yesterday afternoon, with Julius Malema asking if President Ramaphosa was afraid of Cele.
Perhaps Ramaphosa saw this as an easy way to steer headlines away from the ANC’s failure to condemn Russia.
In response to Malema, Ramaphosa answered, “Honourable Malema, I’ve heard what you have said but I fear f*k*l.”
Yes, it’s as lame as it sounds – watch from the 30-second mark:
Here’s the exact moment:

If you fear fokol, why don’t you boot underperforming ministers instead of shunting them from one department to another?
Predictably, opposition parties feigned moral outrage at Ramaphosa’s statement and he later withdrew his use of the word while laughing uproariously.
I wonder if the people of Manenberg, living under siege from gang warfare, found his ability to chuckle about our woefully inept police minister as humorous?
