Right is right

WHAT HAP­PENED FOL­LOW­ERS OF ANC party pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma gath­ered in Mar­itzburg to show their sup­port for him in his High Court ap­pear­ance. They are in­sist­ing on a “po­lit­i­cal so­lu­tion” and for the case to be with­drawn. SA Com­mu­nist Party gen­eral sec­re­tary Blade Nz­i­mande ac­cused the Con­sti­tu­tional Court judges of en­dan­ger­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion. THE SATUR­DAY STAR said that right is right: if Zuma is in­no­cent, the process must go ahead. The Cit­i­zen and the Sun­day Tri­bune warned it was a se­ri­ous mat­ter and that Zuma’s sup­port­ers must obey the law. Beeld said it’s ironic that Zuma – who had re­peat­edly asked for his “day in court” – is him­self cre­at­ing the ob­sta­cles de­lay­ing the hear­ing.
