McBride: the president’s revenge

2013-11-29 00:00

OH to be a fly on the wall when President Jacob Zuma recommended to his cabinet that Robert McBride be appointed the next head of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate.

Although McBride received amnesty from the Truth Commission for having bombed the Why Not Restaurant and Magoo’s Bar in Durban in 1986, killing three people and injuring 69 people, his subsequent behaviour proves that he has no place holding the police accountable, and that amnesty for murderous activity is often questionable for people who fail to distinguish between what is legal and what is legitimate. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
