Vusi Pikoli's removal came as no surprise to the Alliance of Free Democrats and many citizens.
President Kgalema Motlanthe discarded the Ginwala Commission's findings and toed the Luthuli House line because Pikoli was a nuisance in the ANC's shady dealings.
The commission said he was fit to hold office and should be reinstated. Typically the ANC, tackled the man instead of correcting the shortcomings found by the commission.
This is a serious concern considering the significant role the NPA played in fighting corruption and fraud. They want the NPA to be led by a Zumalema and to sweep the NPA's progress under the carpet.
We take rumours that Ngoako Ramatlhodi will become NPA director very seriously. Ramatlhodi had corruption charges hanging over his head until he was exonerated by the NPA last week.
It was very interesting to note SACP leader Blade Nzimande's excitement when Pikoli was removed because he called for Pikoli's reinstatement after Thabo Mbeki fired him. Nzimande now says they never trusted Pikoli.
Constitutional institutions must be free from political pressure and work independently without political interference. They must account to the citizens, not political parties.
