The top two Twitter trends in SA on Thursday were Oscar Pistorius’s murder conviction and rugby coach Heyneke Meyer’s stepping down from the Bok top job. Down at number eight on the list was Black Jesus and, as it turns out, the three trends were related. STUART LEWIS rounds up.
For those who thought that Pistorius didn’t get the harsh sentence that he deserved or if you thought that there could be no hope of a transformed South African rugby team as long as Meyer reigned as coach, the melanin-imbued saviour was working overtime on Thursday.

Of course, since he was handing out so many blessings today, some other local sports coaches were also named as necessary targets for Black Jesus’s intervention.

(Though Black Jesus may need a little help getting through to her.)

Of course, what we all really need is a little help with the Powerball.
