It is really sad and pathetic to see South Africans mostly white and counter revolutionary darkies rejoicing that President Julius Malema is facing money laundering charges. It was first reported that an arrest warrant was issued for President Malema for tax evasion, corruption, fraud and money laundering.
This was nothing but a fabricated lie as only money laundering charges were leveled against the honorable President.
For the past two years, every second week newspapers have been reporting on President Malema’s eminent arrest.
Now to deal with the charges that he is facing. I am afraid the charges that he is faced with Money Laundering are highly sophisticated and need financial intelligence. I am of the view that the state i.e Jacob Zuma’s henchmen are going to have a hard time proving beyond reasonable doubt that President Malema is guilty of Money Laundering.
President Malema is charged according to section 1 of POCA “Proceeds of Crime Act” defined as any property or any service, advantage, benefit or reward which was derived, received or retained in connection with, or as a result of, any unlawful activity carried on by any person.
The key aspect is of money laundering is about offences committed when certain acts are performed in respect of the "proceeds of unlawful activities". It is going to be fun watching the state try and prove in court.
To date money-laundering crimes have no special dedicated unit within the SAPS or NPA. This is because SAPS and NPA is full of halfwits who simply cannot understand specialised financial crimes that include money laundering.
The SAPS crime information and management centre does not even record money-laundering investigations or prosecutions; the only two financial crimes the centre logs are fraud and theft.
This proves once again that these charges are politically motivated. SAPS or the NPA doesn’t have trained financial investigators to deal with complex financial matters. Hence it took these halfwits so long to charge President Malema based on instructions from the “illiterate Jacob Zuma”.
Prosecutors have said that money laundering crimes were “not worth prosecuting” unless it was a major component of a financial crime, since it takes time and is tricky to prove, if a conviction is secured, the sentence is often minimal and runs concurrently with other sentences. Meaning they need other charges for President Malema make this witch hunt work.
President Malema will be victorious through this and we are behind him all the way. The Zuma squad will not win. Zuma's days are numbered and after victory in Mangaung he will be removed from office like we did with Thabo Mbeki.
Long live President Malema long live.
