On a visit to Malawi, at the airport Mr Zuma is met by the country’s Minister of Harbours. All of a sudden Mr Zuma realizes that this is absurd, this country has no harbours as it is landlocked. He is very puzzled and decides to find out what the story is.
At the official state banquet later that night, he leans over to the president and asks: ‘Mr President why do you have a Minister of Harbours when you don’t have any harbours?’ The president looks Mr Zuma straight in the eye and says:
‘Well, you know that may be true Mr Zuma, but I was just as puzzled as to why you have a Minister of Law and Order?’
