Top legal minds for enquiry
NEVER has a comedy of errors been played out more openly by a ruling party than by that of the ANC.
The big guns/gangsters were deployed to Nquthu, and the usual food parcels and regalia were handed to the citizens, who then consumed and demonstrated the power of democracy whereby the people, and not a party, will govern.
This phenomenon will become a common trait which will feature throughout the South African political landscape.
The people will grant a party a term in which to address the plight of the people, and should they fail, that party will be removed.
This gives power to the people, and not historic or passionate allegiance to a structure culpable of deliberate abuse of the system for self-enrichment .
There seems to be agreement, or even dare, in the dead ruling party and Presidency that a judicial enquiry into Zuptafication should take place.
I am reminded that the Constitutional Court determined that recommendation by the Public Protector’s Office sets a precedent.
Therefore, the Chief Justice should determine the structure of the enquiry, and not the ruling party.
I would wish that said judicial enquiry should include retired Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, Judge Navi Pillay and Judge Steven Majiedt, supported by an investigation unit including Anwa Dramat, Robert McBride and those they deem fit to fulfil a task of national importance.
It is only then that not I alone, but all citizens of this country, can be assured that justice is being executed, with true accountability taking place in this land.
