Quote of the week

The recommendation for criminal charges is particularly applicable to Mr Anoj Singh and Mr Koko, who by false pretences led Eskom, through the officials who processed the R659 million payment, to believe that the R659 million payment was in the nature of pre-payment for coal, as was the R1.68 billion pre-payment, later converted into a guarantee, when in truth and fact they knew that the prepayment and the guarantee were needed to enable the Guptas to complete and save the sale of share transaction.

More on Judges

My slightly elaborated take in Business Day on the topic of the disciplining of judges. Since talking on this topic yesterday on RSG, I had interesting correspondence from Judge Louis Harms on the topic. He suggests that there are possibly other serious problems with the proposed legislation and points to the fact that the Minister will be involved in finalising the Code of Conduct in consultation with the Chief Justice. When I have more time I will return to this topic.
