    Certainly not complaining, I hope these ****ers are obliterated but the political interference in the justice system is something everyone should be concerned about.
    Duduzane's dad may have impeded their previous attempt. With him gradually losing power, it's only logical for the heads to try and impress the new chief.
    Yeah whatever mate

    He seems to be implying that Cyril is somehow interfering and instructing them what to do, he Is not saying Zuma's interference was the what was standing in the way of the Hawks doing their job. At least that's how I understood the post.
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.

    I am agreeing with him. Neither JZ nor CR17 influencing NPA/HAwks is desirable.

    That's kinda my point... Let me rephrase:

    People do realise that it's not a good thing that a change in the head of a political party or the prevailing political climate can order/suggest/push/nudge the NPA and Hawks to arrest people in the way? Right?

    ^ In my opinion, hawks are emboldened by the imminent regime change and hence they do not have any reason to be afraid to do their job.

    ^This... I don't think its CR & Co interfering now, its that JZ & Co aren't able to interfere and prevent it anymore... although, could be both /shrug

    But the question we should all be asking is, where is the BLF crew defending them with their lives and whatnot?

    So you're saying the Hawks are a politically controlled organisation that is largely toothless when it comes to effectively combatting political corruption unless it is directed towards the political enemies of those in power?

    Wow. What a revelation. Nobody realised that until this moment. News at 11!

    I understand, allow me to put it like this, A change in the head of a political party or the prevailing political climate that provides an enabling environment for the law enforcement agencies to carry out their duties without fear or favour is a wonderful thing.

    That is exactly what we did not have before.
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.

    Just a thought... If this is indeed Estina related, Ace is implicated... Shouldn't someone tell the newly minted SG to call his lawyer?
