The events that have been unfolding throughout the country leave one in a state of fear.
It started when ANC president Jacob Zuma was charged for corruption. Since then there have been continuous attempts to undermine the role of the judiciary and division of roles and responsibilities of the executive, legislature and judiciary.
President Thabo Mbeki was pressured to withdraw charges against Zuma, as if the Constitution gives him that authority. Then Judge John Hlophe, who is supposed to be a respectable man of the law, tries to manipulate the processes of the land's highest court. As this happens, Julius Malema shocks the country with his vitriol. His election is still a subject of contestation among his colleagues. So to ensure his position is guaranteed, he has to follow the footsteps of Fikile Mbalula, Zwelinzima Vavi and Blade Nzimande. All these men have one thing in common - a total disrespect and disregard for our Constitution, laws, government and people.
And to expect Zuma to call them to order is like expecting the Zimbabwean army or police to rally against Robert Mugabe. If the most important and powerful political organisations in this country are in the hands of renegades, then how secure is our future?
