South Africa's governing party has pronounced: eating sushi off the body of a model in a bikini is politically incorrect. A Monday statement from African National Congress secretary general Gwede Mantashe is unequivocal: "This act is anti-ANC and anti-revolutionary. This act is defamatory, insensitive and undermining of woman's integrity."

The fish-on-flesh question has raged in South African media in recent months following reports of the practice at parties of wealthy businessmen and socialites. Earlier Monday, Johannesburg newspapers reported the head of the ANC's powerful youth league had attended such a party over the weekend.

Mantashe adds: "The ANC is not into nightclubs or partying, but it is a revolutionary movement."
