It is really sad to see that the ANC has decided to dissolve the Scorpions. This reflects negatively on a party that supposedly holds transparency in high regard, and yet wants to close down one of the most efficient crime-fighting units in the country.
Is the ANC afraid that more of its members are going to be exposed by the Scorpions?
The organised crime busting unit has stung the ANC's cream of the crop - first Tony Yengeni, then Jacob Zuma and now Jackie Selebi. Perhaps the transparency route wasn't such a bright idea from the ruling party after all, seeing that they have so much dirty laundry that was meant to stay out of the public eye.
We all know that the SAPS is almost ineffective and the police have also joined the bandwagon of corruption and crime.
The country is facing a serious crime problem. Organised criminal activity and criminality by members of the community and foreigners is escalating and the Scorpions were, and would have, continued to do a good job sorting out these people.
I hope that the ANC will re-think its decision because if they merge the Scorpions with the SAPS, the country will go down the tubes.
