Yep. This delegation arrived in town to do just this. No one has been charged for this event. No one is dumb enough to charge anyone with this ... lest the canaries sing!
Yeah, too convenient.
SA's borders are porous but it is likely the Bushiris wanted to travel in more comfort.

After the Gupta wedding contingency debacle, only the super-doff will roll over for this exodus.

Unfortunately we don't have a shortage of those

My bet is on that one

It's possible, but you have to ask yourself how that would have played out. If the SA authorities were involved then you're talking about a conspiracy that must have stretched all the way to the top. We're not talking about bribing a dodgy Home Affairs official here. It would have required the combined help and collusion of many officials across several different security organisations across different spheres of government. And if that was the case why would the SA government knowingly help a wanted fugitive to escape the country, risking the bad press and reputation damage that would come if it ever got out. Bushiri is a rich man but definitely not rich enough to bribe every single person that would need to be bought off to pull off such a grand scheme.

The conspiracy theorist in me says that if anyone is charged for this, they may roll if their families are richly compensated. But in time, when hardship is felt, and monies are quickly spent, the tap of finances will close, AND, the canaries will sing! :whistling:

The SA government has ignored international icc arrest warrant & local high court order and made sure a dictator wanted for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes did not get arrested & had free passage. Do you for one second think the anc/gov cares about bad press & their reputation?

Nope, he just had to bribe one oke high enough, they all are for sale & willing to use their name to get the subordinates to follow..
Just like nambawan's name was thrown around for the Gooptaah waterkloof landing in fact.
