Pil­lay’s bias is there for all to see

Iam not sur­prised by the mild and ca­jol­ing in­ter­view Ferial Haf­fa­jee con­ducted with Navi Pil­lay, one of South Africa’s ju­di­cial elit­ist celebri­ties, in the ar­ti­cle “Pol­i­tics vs jus­tice” (City Press, June 28 2015).

Haf­fa­jee’s in­ter­view was in­tended to muster sup­port for the en­e­mies of the African Union and African peo­ple who are still per­ceived as chil­dren by the white su­prem­a­cist world, with a par­tic­u­lar foothold in South Africa. What else would Pil­lay say? She has failed in her work to vo­cif­er­ously pur­sue – with those Euro­pean friends of hers – for­mer US pres­i­dent Ge­orge Bush and for­mer UK prime min­is­ter Tony Blair for Iraq and Afghanistan, even though they are not sig­na­to­ries.

Why could she not pur­sue such Cau­casian scoundrels?

The US, like Su­dan, is not a sig­na­tory and, as much as Omar alBashir is pur­sued, so should Bush and Blair be pur­sued. Haf­fa­jee has vi­ciously pro­moted any­thing that ha­rasses Africans in this land. And by the way, tell that Pil­lay to hunt for apartheid gen­er­als and colonels who killed Africans while her lot en­joyed the smart life in the aca­demic palaces of white supremacy.
