Who am I?Where am I?

South African Humo(u)r

Julius Malema meets with Nelson Mandela.

He asks him, "Mr President, how did you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?"

"Well," says Mandela, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people." Malema frowns. "But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?"Mandela takes a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy. You just ask them to answer an intelligence riddle."

Mandela pushes a button on his intercom. "Please send Thabo Mbeki in here, would you?"Thabo Mbeki walks into the room. "Yes, my President?"Mandela smiles. "Answer me this, please, Thabo. Your mother and Fatherhave a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"Without pausing for a moment, Thabo Mbeki answers, "That would be me."

"Yes! Very good," says Mandela. Back in Luthuli House, Malema asks to speak with ANC president Zuma." Answer this for me. Your mother and your Father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"

"I'm not sure," says Zuma. "Let me get back to you on that one." Zuma goes to his advisors and asks everyone, but none can give him ananswer. Finally, he ends up at the COPE meeting and bumps into Terror Lekota. Zuma looks around to see if anyone can overhear them whisper, "Terror!Can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?" Terror whispers back, "That's easy. It's me!" Zuma smiles and says "Thanks!"

Zuma goes back to Luthuli House to speak with the youth leader. "Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Terror Lekota."

Malema gets up, stomps over to Zuma, and angrily yells into his face,"No, you idiot! It's Thabo Mbeki!
