Po­lice Min­is­ter Fik­ile Mbalula’s re­moval of Kho­motso Phahlane as act­ing na­tional po­lice com­mis­sioner and Bern­ing Ntle­meza as Hawks head shows his in­ten­tion to root out the rot from the top. The two are each un­der a cloud and Mbalula’s de­ci­sions mean those in these of­fices must only be con­cerned with fight­ing crime – not clear­ing their names. The leaked emails from the busi­nesses of the Gupta family prove how Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma created a par­al­lel state, con­trolled by the Gup­tas, to run the coun­try. His son Duduzane has emerged as a cen­tral fig­ure in the klep­toc­racy. The dam­age caused by Zuma will haunt the coun­try long af­ter he has left the Union Build­ings.
