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.

Pity they are not on the ballot…

The Social Justice Coalition will be holding a protest meeting on Thibault Square in Cape Town on Saturday morning from 12 a.m. to protest the Dalai Lama decision, the arms deal corruption and the dismal service delivery. Their plan of action states that they demand a commitment by all political parties to:

  • Always act in solidarity with marginalised people by actively promoting the bill of rights and the UN declaration of human rights, both locally and internationally, and make decisions based on its principles;
  • Enforce the principle that all are equal before law
  • Protect the independence and integrity of the courts and allow for due judicial process without political interference;
  • Prioritise the needs of the poor, disenfranchised and most vulnerable;
  • Work actively to stamp out racism, bigotry, xenophobia, sexism, religious discrimination and homophobia;
  • Ensure that corporations locally and globally engage in fair trade with fair labour practices and openness in financial institutions.

Pity they are not on the ballot because then I could vote for a party in whose principles and values I actually believe. See you there?
