JZ's contempt of court

11 January 2018, 15:12
When JZ lost his appeal in court, the court ruled that the deputy president should launch a commission in to state capture as JZ is implicated. Read another way, it is a direct order that JZ should NOT create such a commission.
And yet, JZ launched the commission (thank Cyril for dragging his feet).
So, JZ is blatantly in contempt of court.
Maybe it's a good reason for Cyril to recall JZ (the free higher education move should also be sufficient grounds for this).
I would say that a motion of no confidence is in order, but, as we know all too well, this will only generate support for Zuma in the ANC.
So what about Zonda and the Chief Justice; are they aware that they are aiding JZ in contravening a court order?  If they knew, are they ethical? If not, are they competent? 
If JZ's commission is not replaced, or is allowed to proceed with a scope outside of the former public protectors recommendations, should we assume Cyril is captured as well? He certainly seems to tolerate populist garbage.
It seems that, since the ANC's elections, Zuma has been given free reign to determine ANC policy on education, and to openly defy the courts; at least it's taken him this long to realise that the ANC has no control over him.

Cyril in Wonderland

It would be unwise to pin any hopes on the much talked up Jobs Summit. If the prospects generated could match the hot air that resulted, it might have been different!  Read more...

When people really have nothing, they have nothing to lose. To someone in this situation the suggestion to demonstrate, riot and loot would most probably look quite acceptable. Read more...
