Nice move there although smacks of PR campaign says skeptic in me.His brother, Ayongezwa Lungisa says the former councillor has decided to only leave prison once he completes a number of rehabilitation programmes he has started.citizen.co.za

We learnt a lot about how the law can be manipulated to suit vested interests and how government structures have collapsed.Cases like this are very educational to the public, as tragic as the Zuma years were we learnt a lot of things on how the law and many other government structures work.
I am not sure what you are saying here but I think the law is working exactly how it's supposed to work in Lungisa's case, it's provided for in law that someone can appeal until all appeal avenues are exhausted. people are just surprised and even suspicious because they are actually learning something new because some politician is being prosecuted, we wouldn't have all of this if it was just an ordinary Sipho from Matatiele.We learnt a lot about how the law can be manipulated to suit vested interests and government structures have collapsed.
Us old timers know how these things are supposed to work.
