Quote of the week

Excluding refugees from the right to work as private security providers simply because they are refugees will inevitably foster a climate of xenophobia which will be harmful to refugees and inconsistent with the overall vision of our Constitution. As a group that is by definition vulnerable, the impact of discrimination of this sort can be damaging in a significant way. In reaching this conclusion it is important to bear in mind that it is not only the social stigma which may result from such discrimination, but also the material impact that it may have on refugees.

More allegations against Selebi

If these allegations by ex Justice William Heath are true, this is going to be a huge scandal. Money qoute:

Speaking on Moneyweb Radio Monday night, Heath painted a picture of how the police, steered by controversial national commissioner Jackie Selebi not only failed to act on evidence given to them, but appeared to purposely bungle the investigation into Kebble’s death. Selebi is (or certainly was) a friend of Agliotti.

Judge Heath, of course, is not coming to the party with a spotless reputation. He was after all employed by Kebble in an attempt provide a veneer of respectability to his operation.
