South African satire regarding the political landscape strikes again as an Nkandla parody song goes viral.

The song ‘Nkandla Style’ remade from the YouTube hit, Gangnam Style was posted on 27 March and already has over 250 000 views and still growing exponentially.

The song is a humorous take on the Nkandla debacle that has had the country in a row since the Public Protector released a report which said that President Jacob Zuma and family had unduly benefitted from security upgrades.

The song uses the same catchy Gangnam tune with phrases such as; ‘since the day I can remember I always wanted more, I wanted more money like the Afrikaner Boer, so I became a comrade when I was still young.’

As well as ‘The Public Protector, I never should have kept her.’

The chorus says; ‘if you number one you get to drive the gravy train, if you number one you get to fly the Gupta plane…’

The song also makes references to Nkandla feature upgrades that the Public Protector pointed out such as the fire pool as well as Zuma saying dogs are for white people and a Julius Malema remark which is cleverly disguised.

There is no information on who created the song, but the YouTube account created for the song goes by the name Nkandla Staail.

Check out the song that appears to becoming a South African hit.

Alot of what has been said in the song is actually the truth. How could the ANC go along with Zuma's tactics. Its really sad that the ANC has turned into an organisation that it has now become. Who do we vote for now? How can we be loyal to the ANC after this. It seems like the party thinks we are fools.
