Hedging one's bets?

That is the only way I can make sense of the news of business figures making donations to the South African Communist Party, which, apparently has stopped using the slogan of "Workers of the world, unite and fight for a white South Africa!"

Over at the SACP's site, one can buy a t-shirt with the image of one Vladimir Ulyanov, and the slogan 'Quality never goes out of fashion'. Nice. Still, no watered down eurosocialism for the comrades in Jo'burg, eh?

Meanwhile, back at the plot, "Senior communists have raised questions about a total of R1,7-million in donations made to the South African Communist Party (SACP), which they say are unaccounted for. And they claim that the donations were made directly to SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande".

...

"The R1,7-million (a shade under £120,000) includes R500 000 which, as reported last Sunday, is the subject of complaint by controversial businessman Charles Modise to the South African Police Service. Modise claims he gave Nzimande the money in cash for salaries and that it subsequently went astray.

In addition, the SACP is alleged to have received three other payments that are not accounted for: a R600 000 donation by a Limpopo politician-cum-businessman, R360 000 paid over accidentally by the Banking Association and R300 000 from the Chinese Communist Party".

Could the comrades have had their fingers in the till? Heaven forfend......

Mr C: Are you able to reassure your readers that this story is in no way connected to the McBroon missing £14 million election fund?

I would that I could, but there is nothing I would put past the Lord Protector, including stealing the pennies from a dead relative's eyes.
