Using the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA), the Democratic Alliance has succeeded in forcing the presidency to release the Khampepe Commission Report on the Scorpions: the full content of the report will be gazetted on May 5. Services. We should find out if this really was (as reportedly admitted to Zille by ANC Secretary-General Gwede Mantashe) a post-Polokwane attempt to weaken the Scorpions and control investigations threatening to reveal wrongdoing by various prominent ANC members. If so this would confirm that some in the ANC believe party solidarity has precedence over the state, the antithesis of true democracy and a flouting of the SA Constitution. Also, we should learn why it is that a report whose content had remained secret for so long is now made available, albeit under pressure: a sudden change of heart in response to public feeling, perhaps? Or is there some other agenda at work here, related possibly to the reduction of political and popular support for President Thabo Mbeki?
