Just Manyi being Manyi

The banner headline in South Africa's Sunday Times was almost big enough to read from across the room:

"Why Manny was suspended"

What? Has Manny Ramirez found trouble again? And why do they care here?

It took a closer reading to calm the nerves. Turns out the headline said 'Manyi' and it was referring to Jimmy Manyi, director general of the Labor Ministry, who lost his job over his behavior during a meeting in which he upset his boss.
