Quote of the week

Senekal last week had nothing to do with solutions. It was all about politicians’ testosterone. It was all about politicians’ egos. What useful idea came out of all that heat and noise generated by all those politicians in Senekal last week? There is nothing. Nothing that makes SA a better place. Nothing that leads us to a better understanding of race relations in SA after 1994. Nothing that is a solution to farm murders – many of whose victims are poorly paid, desperate black people – or a solution to the incredibly horrendous murder and crime problem in this country.

JSC to revisit Hlophe matter?

The Cape Argus reports today that the JSC will re-open the matter of Judge President John Hlophe and the almost R500 000 he received from Oasis for “out of pocket expenses”.

Does this mean that there are discrepancies between the version provided to the JSC by Judge Hlophe (and accepted by a majority of its members) and the information that came out in court papers? Surely Justice Hlophe would not have been unwise enough to make claims to the JSC that can be contradicted by hard evidence?

My innitial response to this sorry saga has not changed.
