Yet...no repercussions/accountability and the trough feeders carry on with life as usual with their luxury lifestyles! Then people wonder why front page news is obsessed with race baiting articles instead of true in depth reporting of state collusion/ineptness and worst of all, treason against the state!

I was under the impression that Zwane had currently no job.

Estina case where he's heavily involved is ongoing and will probably hit him, further cases investigated by the Hawks will also come to court at some point.

The media time is different from the justice's system.

Go lay the charges, gather evidence, investigate, prepare the case and see how long it takes.

On the other hand, it only takes a week or so for a journalist to write a story.

It took 5 years for Olmert to go to jail, 12 years for Chirac to be convincted, it's nothing unusual, political cases always take long by nature since they are complex (same for financial crimes).

I don't hear you moaning that nothing happens on the Steinhoff or even Kebble cases for example?

I have done that, and it does take a time, depending on the complexity, but I have never spent more than a year. They were tax or smuggling cases, so arguably not as complex as some other types.
A lot depends on the will of the employer (Police etc.) concerned to make resources available. 'Nuff said?
