"Now They Call Me CIC Of The Talibans" Yengeni Says As He Shares This Photo

A veteran of the African National Congress, Tony Yengeni posted a picture of himself on social media wearing a scarf similar to the one worn by the victorious Talibans group from Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Tony Yengeni, a frequent scarf-wearer, claimed that his new title as "commander in chief of the Talibans" was a result of his wearing the scarf.

CIC wama Taliban is what they call me now," Tony Yengeni wrote online.

Members of the newly elected KwaZulu Natal Provincial Executive Committee have been meeting with government officials, including as former president Thabo Mbeki. Having recently reshuffled their cabinet, they paid an official visit to Zulu King Misuzulu KaZwelithini at his palace in Pongola on Thursday.

Many in KwaZulu Natal are optimistic about the future of their province because they think this administration has gotten off to a strong start. In the coming weeks, the government's top brass will pay a formal visit to former president Jacob Zuma's Nkandla estate.

Siboniso Duma, chair of the ANC in KwaZulu Natal, made it plain that the province will continue to seek advice from former president Jacob Zuma. Some observers have called the Taliban "Zuma loyalists" after they froze out a slate led by Sihle Zikalala during the conference.

Some people have accused Tony Yengeni, after he posted a picture of himself on social media wearing a Taliban scarf, of trying to force himself on something he doesn't understand. They claimed that this was typical behavior amongst ANC members, who tended to focus more on individuals' surnames than on the organization's policies.

"So instead of keeping your word to the people at large, you're preoccupied with giving yourself a name you don't deserve. In my mind's eye, I can still see the springbok running away from the fighting lions. Cry out to your beloved country, "that's what they're saying.

Ace Magashule, the suspended secretary general of the ANC, was once spotted wearing a scarf similar to that of the Taliban in an apparent show of support for the new ANC leadership in KwaZulu Natal.
