This is the common thread that runs with anything this government does or when it is challenged.


BAT should be embarrassed for dropping their initial case. They were comprehensively duped.
You can't trust the ANC, just on smokes they have lied/misrepresented the truth directly to the face of the public 4 times already since the start of this.
The link on the previous page is shocking. NDZ has never once accounted to parliament during all her years in cabinet:

Yeah read that, amazed how she has been allowed to get away with what is a blatantly obvious tactic to avoid accountability.

I had a weird thought today. So FITA includes Mazzoti and Eddie ZoomZoom in its member list. What if the FITA case was a smokescreen? Everyone else doesn't engage in a legal challenge because FITA is already doing it. Then on the afternoon of the 8th, FITA withdraws its case. Boom, Doekdevil has bought over a month of extra time for her "Blessers"

That, or, maybe they will get their case in court and win it but only their brands are allowed to be sold while the rest stay banned... :laugh:

NDZol implements ban and stalls BATSA. FITA continues with their case and come out the heroes when they win. Customers ditch BATSA for FITA for taking the fight to government. FITA products already on the black market, and gains market share in the legal market.

Many are protesting, but when being outside your house for a protest can now get you arrested, it makes sense to not push ones luck.... the cops would gladly arrest all and sundry, and even if the charges had no merit and were thrown out... it means people would have spent a night in holding and no right thinking person wants to do that....

Dlamini Zuma is classic reason why old people should not be in politics or government. They are too rigid and stubbornly stuck in old ideas. Old people don't care whether they are right or wrong, whether the evidence tells a different story to what they are saying doesn't matter at all.

Politics is about compromise and flexibility. Dlamini Zuma is in the wrong job and needs to be removed.

By last week, the police had arrested 230,000 South Africans for violating various lockdown regulations, far higher than the numbers of Filipinos arrested during an 11-week lockdown by the regime of Rodrigo Duterte.
During his more than two decades as mayor of Davao City, the controversial politician transformed the city from a haven of lawlessness into one of the safest areas in Southeast Asia. Duterte’s harsh crime-fighting tactics earned him the nicknames “the Punisher” and “Duterte Harry” (in reference to the film character Dirty Harry, the ruthlessly effective police inspector portrayed by actor Clint Eastwood), but critics such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch claimed that Duterte was responsible for more than 1,000 extrajudicial killings. Rather than denying such allegations, he embraced them.
We are dealing with a live one here ..... NDZ is a real piece of work, and you folks in SA are in deep deep poo.
