The pot calling the kettle black

Lifestyle Section - Opinion

  There is something particularly odious about a pompous, gloating hypocrite, and try as I might, I cannot find any other words to describe ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu speaking in an interview on a local talk radio station last Wednesday last.
