No denying discrepancies in the legal system

ever before in the history of this country, pre- or post- apartheid, has any single leader been given as much support as Jacob Zuma. Nelson Mandela and company did receive support but just about everyone knew that the system was designed to swallow them as they stood no chance. And yes, the system did swallow them. Besides, they were a group of people and not a single individual as it is in Zuma’s case.

However, if there is substance in the charges against Zuma, he should then answer to the courts of the land. Some have said that going to court would short-change him and that he has been trying to avoid going to court because “he’s guilty”. I ask: how so when he has not been tried in a court of law? publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
