    This sounds suspicious. Who’s making these appointments and for what reason. Isn’t this confirming the rumours flying around about big man being either dead or ill? Are these appointments not lining up mhlakhos easy take over?

    The president and his team should not blame people for the noise but rather should question the behavior of his team.

      Have you seen his signature on the appointments? Don’t you think it’s suspicious that the appointments have been announced while he is in “disappearance”? Don’t you think it’s an attempt to make it look like the president is alive and well when he isn’t?
