With the growing number of civil servants on what President Thabo Mbeki euphemistically calls “extended leave”, we should stage some sort of event to recognise those who have excelled in the fields of fraud, corruption, racketeering and so on. Nominations for the first annual Golden Chop Awards are pouring in. Right now, Selebi is a hot favourite. Industry insiders report that Selebi is slated to appear later this year in the legal drama Gun with the Wind. Co-starring Glenn Agliotti as The Dealer, Clint Nassif as The Canary and Brett Kebble as The Dead Guy, this complex production is likely to take months to wrap up.
