Bye to fight against crime

ORDINARY South Africans ignored many calls by Cope, the UDM, DA and Thabo Mbeki supporters that no ANC or Jacob Zuma politician will be prosecuted post-Mbeki.

They have been vindicated. Many politicians who faced prosecution or were under investigation hid beneath Zuma's wings.

Today, without forwarding reasons, the NPA withdrew the case against Peggy Nkonyeni. The same thing happened with Zuma, Tony Yengeni, Ngaoko Ramatlhodi and Mac Maharaj.

The next to be off the hook are Nyami Booi and ANC councillors of the Pietermaritzburg and Bloemfontein councils who are facing corruption cases.

The strategic appointment of Bheki Cele and dissolution of the Scorpions were aimed at weakening the state from investigating and prosecuting corrupt politicians. Political parties that sent these warnings were called agents of counter-revolution by Blade Nzimande, Zwelinzima Vavi and Julius Malema.

Those who fund the ANC from state coffers obtained through tender irregularities and inflation of prices will not be investigated under the current administration.

Hit squads used by taxi owners funding the ruling party will never be investigated as long as Cele is boss

I don't know why Sihle Zikalala blames the NPA in Yengeni's case when the rumour mill puts the blame on the ANC, which was divided about the premiership.

I agree with Cope that "it's bye bye" to the state's fight against organised crime. We have mambas under the state carpet, apologists of corruption in the SAPS, the judiciary and NPA.
