    No chance of him being fired as a coucillor for dishonesty - more likely he will be promoted for showing initiative! As for the court case - he will be given a fine or suspended sentence because it is his first offence as this is standard practice in SA. Clearly the authorities feel it is necessary to give criminals one free pass or two, or three, or 16 as in the case of the Rolex gang leader. Viva justice in SA. Pathetic!
