Many wrong things are being said in defence of ANC president Jacob Zuma.
At the ANC conference in KwaZulu-Natal, Gwede Mantashe said the Constitutional Court was preparing the nation for mischief. Is this the reason why Judge John Hlophe is in trouble? Does Mantashe have inside information about what the court will say? Don't defend the indefensible.
As the nation moves closer to the court date, the new ANC leadership will undermine the independence and integrity of our courts in a similar way Zwelinzima Vavi, Blade Nzimande and Fikile Mbalula viciously pounced on Judge Hillary Squires.
Most of these leaders also refer to Zuma's fraud and corruption trial as political. How can a leader of Mantashe's calibre elevate a purely criminal case into a political trial? Zuma's trial is not similar to the Rivonia or UDF Delmas trials.
Evidence has been published confirming that Zuma had a "generally corrupt" relationship with Shabir Shaik. Also, it was confirmed that Zuma attended several meetings with Shaik and Thint.
As the nation moves closer to Zuma's trial date, the new ANC leadership and Cosatu will spew more war rhetoric to mobilise ignorant masses to support their embattled leader.
