Posted on 06/21/2011 11:59:46 AM PDT by tcrlaf
South Africa President Jacob Zuma has snubbed the visiting Michelle Obama by sending his prisons minister to meet the first lady at the airport and failing to see her during her three-day stay.
Mr Zuma was out of the country for the first day of Mrs Obama's second solo trip abroad on Tuesday and although he returned on Monday night, aides said he was "not available" to meet her.
Instead, he arranged for Corrective Services Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula to greet her on her arrival in Pretoria on Monday night, and one of his three wives, Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, to meet her briefly on Tuesday.

Subliminal message delivered LOUD AND CLEAR!
South Africa is VERY UNHAPPY with Obama because of his illegal not-a-war War against Libya for European Oil.
Just last week, Zuma BLASTED Obama, and "issued a sharp riposte to an appeal by Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, to African leaders to help remove Libya's Col Muammar Gaddafi.
"We strongly believe that the (UN Security Council) resolution is being abused for regime change, political assassinations and foreign military occupation,"
Hey Zuma......the bombing of your country is right around the corner!!! NO ONE snubs “The Messiah’s wife”!!
>>Subliminal message delivered LOUD AND CLEAR!<<
I think it is liminal...
Best news I’ve heard all day.
It’s hilarious that the prison minister was sent to Obama (oh sorry - messiah - anti-christ wife).... Oh how appropriate, the prison minister - to meet the real thing! HAH hilarious!
Sometimes you can't make this (stuff) up.
Yes, it does seem a lot like that doesn't it?
It doesn’t get any better than this! HAHA!
On has to wonder what that wife did or didn’t do to get this dirty job.
I think some U.S. equivalent of Prison Minister should meet her on her return.
Corrective Services Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula probably got a tip that there was a rampaging Wookie at the airport .......
cue the ha ha kid
The fact is only a handfull of people know for sure who Obama really is.
Zuma’s wise to keep his distance from the U.S.’s Manchurian Candidate.
So much for restoring America’s image abroad.
I never thought I'd say it, but on the subject of Libya and Col Muammar Gaddafi I tend to agree with Mr. Zuma. Libya's a sovereign nation. Why are we going to war against it? I agree that they're probably responsible for the Lockerby Bombing, but that is something for the Brits to settle.
My whole thing with Libya is the reasons the TOTUS gave for bombing them in the first place! Every stinking one of his reasons applied to Syria too. Not saying I want to pay for bombs to splatter Syria all over the place just yet, but where in the hell is the consistency? Does he really think nobody sees this?
Obama’s stated, and unstated reasons for bombing Libya have nothing to do with US national security or revenge for Khadaffy’s past terrorism against us. He’s doing it for the UN, the “Responsibility to Protect” loons, and the European oil customers.
JZ does keep busy.
Michelle should be honored with the privilege of having met Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma.
Did she also meet the sanitary workers at the airport?
BANG! ZUMA! To the moon, Moochelle!
No consistency whatsoever and no respect for law or sovereignty. This is what has Africa and the ME so jittery. Nobody knows what could happen next or who could be the next target.
As far as Libya, they said it was to protect civilians. However anyone with more than two brain cells can see that it is not a defensive campaign. It is an offensive war of assassination and conquest. All that ‘humanitarian’ nonsense was just pure BS.
Michelle did get to meet the terrorist, Nelson Mandella.
Ping...yes...U.S. Prison Minister should meet mrs. Obama upon her return...too funny!
Whoa....that’s a serious thing to send the Prison Minister to greet any uh...dignitary(?), first lady, uh...exactly why should she get the roll-out red carpet treatment?
One it is a clear, very clear message to the United States, not just the 0bama regime.
Now, please consider the security risks of the 0bama’s continuing their grand world adventures...our poor Secret Service folks have got to be on such a heightened level ...I can not even imagine.
They, yes, I do mean the 0bama’s have pushed things way too far.
I do pray everyday for their safety. It is said, “God watches over children and fools.”
This may be far simpler than it appears.
Jacob Zuma is a Zulu. Michelle Obama’s ancestors were slaves from West Africa. Zulus are a warrior people with no respect for slave peoples. Or just about anyone else. They only grudgingly accept Boers as almost peers, after the Boers slaughtered a lot of Zulu in brutal fights.
When Zuma looks at her picture, he sees a West African.
Laura Bush meets with Mrs. Zanele Mbeki, wife of South African President Thabo Mbeki Monday, July 11, 2005, at the Etali Lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa.
I don’t ever recall Laura Bush being snubbed from anything...
They’ve done a lot of classless snubbing and now it is coming back at them...
The names of these people resemble Star Wars characters. This is no coincidence.
