PAC slams bail for ‘bully’ Manana
WE ARE told that many women do not report cases of violence, because of a lack of confidence towards our law-enforcement agencies.
It is clear that those with access to expensive and experienced legal counsel are entitled to kill or rape without any consequences. This precedent started with their father, Jacob Zuma, when he walked free despite the rape case of the late Khwezi (may her soul rest in peace).
The PAC is flabbergasted by the bail granted to a violent bully, Deputy Minister Mduduzi Manana, who is from the governing party.
This is a great shock to the PAC as we thought that, since the matter received huge media attention, the government would do what was right to keep Manana in custody with other offenders who disregard the rule of law.
Our law enforcement agencies do not learn. We are risking many lives of women who potentially can be victims of this bully who goes around beating women. We are not happy. This is a common gesture in our communities, where some criminals with connections are not punished by law-enforcement agencies.
What is triggering our displeasure is that Manana was beating a woman for the second time now, as he has done this in the past in his hometown of Ermelo.
This bail hearing does not augur well for the future of law-enforcement agencies in our country. PAC spokesperson
