TONY Yengeni, the once good-looking young parliamentarian of the '90s, the hope of the ANC's future, was, alas, without a role model.
So it was like a six-year-old let loose in a candy store.
So, it was the pretty boy who got greedy and oh so crooked, they said. What a pity, he could have been somebody one day.
So he became somebody, today he is a very large hooligan. How else could he drive not one, but two Maseratis and various other cars?
But for how long is his protector putting up with his shenanigans with four years of a jail sentence reduced to four months? You have to have a big time protector.
And one alleged drunk driving accident after the other? The once handsome Yengeni looks blurred, puffed and neglected.
What a loss for the ANC! He had all the potential.
What is it that happens to so many ANC men that could have been, but went off the rails of the gravy train?
I am so worried about the ANC head office. Are the elders losing it, and are they not strict enough with concern about theft and corruption?
Why and what did the founders suffer for all those years before?
People must realise that you have to work for what you want.
