Quote of the week

A few months ago, author William Gumede described Zuma as someone with a narcissistic personality disorder — a set of traits defined by Austrian psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut as “including an exaggerated sense of superiority, a lack of self-awareness about the impact of their behaviour and having a disdain for others, who they devalue to validate their own grandiosity”. These people lack empathy, have a distorted sense of reality and are incapable of seeing anything from anyone else’s perspective. Narcissists like Zuma, Gumede argues, can’t accept responsibility and don’t care if they take down entire countries with them. The events at Nkandla, sadly for Zuma, only reinforced that perspective.

Newsflash: SCA rules against JSC

Just heard the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) has found against the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) in both cases dealing with their handling of the complaints of Judge President John Hlophe and the judges of the Constitutional Court. The case has to be re-opened. Anyone with copies of the judgements, please send them to me!
