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.

Jacob Zuma’s contempt of court

It is unbecoming and irresponsible of a person in Mr Zuma’s position to wilfully undermine the law in this way.  Mr Zuma had every right and opportunity to defend his rights, but he chose, time and time again, to publicly reject and vilify the Judiciary entirely.  I have already detailed the lengths to which this Court has gone in this matter to safeguard Mr Zuma’s rights despite his insolence towards this Court.  Consequently, there is no sound or logical basis on which Mr Zuma can claim to have been treated unfairly or victimised by this Court.  His attempts to evoke public sympathy through such allegations fly in the face of reason.  They are an insult to the constitutional dispensation for which so many women and men fought and lost their lives.
