NPA boss has let us down

2016-11-09 06:01

IT is with regret that I write about on our NPA boss Shaun Abrahams of whom I was so proud.

What was he thinking when he decided first of all to have a private meeting with President Jacob Zuma, thereafter appear on national television to charge Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, and soon after drop the charges?

We, especially the Coloured community, were so proud of him and hoped he would do his job well. He has let us all down by his actions.

The people of South Africa want justice for all the perpetrators, who are abusing their powers in this country, and Abrahams was the one we thought would do his job and grant us, the people, the justice we deserve.

He should have gone to Thuli Madonsela for her to teach him the ropes on how to go about prosecuting members of Parliament who are doing nothing but lining their pockets and I guarantee he would have stood out like a hero.

I think we need people who are not chosen by the ruling party to represent the public in all these never-ending fraud and corruption sagas.
