well, nami angazi, angifuni kuthiwe ngitheni. but what i can say Mzala is that neo-liberal capitalism is running amok and those who are supposed to seriously tamper with capitalist imperialist power relations merely yell in microphones _ well, say "performative rage". and the following day it's bussiness as usual.
upon receiving the job offer many of us give thanks, and so we say, "God blessed me with a job. ngyabonga". yet two months down the line we cry foul, "deadlines kill me, i really cannot feel myself, i know God will come in handy. i can't take it anymore here".

Lushaba's crime? To stretch political science beyond acceptable limits set by the Empire. He blasted off the lid that protects the dominant canon in the political science discipline as we know it.
