OUR moegoe this week has to be Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma for gag­ging pub­lic pro­tec­tor Thuli Madon­sela.

Zuma and Min­is­ter of Co­op­er­a­tive Gov­er­nance and Tra­di­tional Af­fairs Des van Rooyen launched court bids to stop Madon­sela re­leas­ing her re­port on al­le­ga­tions of state cap­ture by the Gupta fam­ily.

Their ac­tions raise many ques­tions and sus­pi­cions as to what they are try­ing to hide. We need trans­par­ent gov­ern­ment for democ­racy to work. Pub­lic trust has been eroded.
