Quote of the week

Mr Malema’s remarks that the IEC “continues to rig elections … You stole our votes in Alexandra and we allowed you” is unsubstantiated and has the capacity to undermine the impartiality and effectiveness of the IEC, as the critical local government elections loom. It is ironic that the EFF has chosen to attack the IEC in this manner so soon after going to great lengths to safeguard the independence, power and authority of another Chapter Nine body, the Public Protector. The Constitutional Court judgment in the Nkandla matter was a strong vindication of the importance of these independent constitutional bodies in our system of governance.

Parody of the JSC

This is a very funny parody of the non-appointment of Jeremy Gauntlett by the Judicial Service Commission, making use of the now familiar scene from “Downfall” in which Hitler is told it is all over. Just because it is Friday.
