The Constitutional Court in South Africa has certain obligations – upholding the constitution itself, clearly is one of them. So. What would you think if Jimmy Manyi stated “The decisions of the Constitutional Court are to be assessed as part of a broader look at transformation of the judicial system.”
In my earlier articles I stated who people where paying police officers bribes to, for example, 'lose' murder dockets. I also heard how an accountant had stolen R 8 million from a company, her sentence? Three (3) years. Under house arrest.
I can't possible see how 'assessing' the decisions of the Constitutional Court will transform the judicial system. As it appears, it doesn't exist. More than half of the members of parliament are guilty of something – drunk driving, fraud, assault... you get the picture. Would I be correct to state that they (the ANC) is planning to make it easy for criminals (like M.P.'s) to stay out of jail? Perhaps making it easy to put law-abiding citizens in jail?
Take for example President Zuma He is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb-sucker, and an idiot. He is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief. President Zuma is the worst example of a Christian I have ever personally witnessed. He married for money and is using his wealth to lie to the people. He also has a reputation for shirking his representative obligations both locally and overseas. The man is simply not to be trusted. He, for example, invited Prince Charles to visit South Africa. Then he went overseas. What is this?
I can't ask for justice. There is none. 70% of dockets in the SAPS are never solved. And while I do understand that one (they spend too much time stopping people from smoking in their car when there is a five-year or younger in the car.)
But wait. There is more.
Take the laws our previous President passed.
It's illegal for people under sixteen to kiss. But as a parent, if they ask for condoms, you have to give it to them. Mmmm. I suppose they need it for balloons.
What is this?
Even I, who stood against the Apartheid government, would prefer them back. Crime wasn't so shocking. Criminal cases were solved. The checks and balances then ensures that R 3.8 billion (like these days) wouldn't 'disappear' into thin air.
So what do they mean when they state “The decisions of the Constitutional Court are to be assessed as part of a broader look at transformation of the judicial system.”
Are we going the Zimbabwe route. Or are we there already?
