South Africa: President Says Dogs Should Not Be Mans Best Friend
According to the South African president Jacob Zuma, owning a pet is part of ‘white culture’ and people should focus on family welfare instead. He says a dog should not be man’s best friend. The president’s statement, which was made a little over a year ago was met by anger from many pet lovers.
His presidential office tried to smooth things over by telling Star news he was encouraging “the previously oppressed African majority” to uphold its own culture.
“Will I become ‘more African’ if I kick my dog, President Zuma,” asked an angry pet owner.
One humorist wrote: “Well, that pretty much rules out that photo opportunity with Zuma, the Obamas and their pet dog, Bo, in the White House.”
During his speech to an appreciative crowd in his home province KwaZulu-Natal, the president said people who love dogs more than people have a “lack of humanity” and that some people are trying in vain to “emulate whiteness.”
“Even if you apply any kind of lotion and straighten your hair, you will never be white,” said the president.
Star news said he gave examples of people loving animals more than other human beings — letting a dog sit in the cab of a truck while a worker has to sit in the back in the rain, or rushing an animal to the veterinarian while ignoring sick relatives or workers.
