In another twist involving the public protector’s office‚ the Minister of Co-operative Governance an.
Kabelo Thibedi should not have been sent to jail, though his actions cannot be condoned.
The director of public prosecutions and justice minister should look into how some white judges and magistrates make decisions and reasons should be sought about this verdict. Rather than prison, Thibedi should have been given a suspended sentence or correctional supervision.
I am very disappointed in our criminal justice system. There is no consistency and sentences in some instances do not fit the crime. Thibedi must be strong and behave and he will not have to serve the whole sentence.
