Quote of the week

Regard must be had to the higher standard of conduct expected from public officials, and the number of falsehoods that have been put forward by the Public Protector in the course of the litigation.  This conduct included the numerous “misstatements”, like misrepresenting, under oath, her reliance on evidence of economic experts in drawing up the report, failing to provide a complete record, ordered and indexed, so that the contents thereof could be determined, failing to disclose material meetings and then obfuscating the reasons for them and the reasons why they had not been previously disclosed, and generally failing to provide the court with a frank and candid account of her conduct in preparing the report. The punitive aspect of the costs order therefore stands.

FNB hackers….

I received the following email on Friday that was clearly sent out by hackers trying to get your details:

Wachovia - Personal  Finance and Business Financial Services

FNB, Customers Care Center. 

If I was the paranoid type, I would wonder about the timing of this email, arriving on the same day that FNB decided to can their campaign against crime directed at President Mbeki. I am sure the National Intelligence Agency has better things to do, but this is the kind of stuff conspiracy theorists swoon about.

Wonder what Billy Masetla has been up to lately……?
