Obganiate

Welcome to the A-Z April blogging challenge. We are participating with a daily dose of vocabulary by selecting an unusual word and making a sentence with it.



OBGANIATE

- to irritate someone by constantly repeating oneself


Gerrie Nel (pictured) is the South African lawyer prosecuting in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial. He is known as the 'pitbull' for his aggressive tactics in the courtroom. I was watching a session recently, so when I came across the word 'obganiate', I immediately thought of Nel! He's very clever and repeats certain points over and over again. It's taking a lot of patience on Pistorius' part.
