Action will be taken if Shaik guilty - minister

2011-03-07 16:15

Johannesburg - Action will be taken against convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik if he is found guilty of assaulting a journalist while playing golf last week, Correctional Services Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said on Monday.

"We don't know if he violated his parole," Mapisa-Nqakula said in Johannesburg.

"Any crime - assault is a crime - we expect the journalist to lay charges with the police and if the police investigate and lay charges against Schabir we will do something about that," she said.

Mapisa-Nqakula said the department was conducting its own investigation into whether Shaik violated his conditions of parole.

She said his parole conditions were not as stringent as they were when he was released.

Shaik now had six free hours a weekend and two hours during the week.

He allegedly throttled a journalist while playing golf in Durban last week.

    lol, yes minister, believe me, pigs fly!!

      Pat Bromilow-Downing - 2011-03-07 16:42

      Yep! Try pulling the other one! The most that would happen is that he would have to spend a week or 2 in hospital!!

      Sorry - let's start again with the caps lock off. Shabby Shaik is a walking, talking testimony to the ongoing corruption that the ANC stands for. Our government is a total disgrace, and nobody with any ethics whatsoever can vote for it with a clear conscience any more.

      Latest ANC directive!! 'If you can't restrict the press then best you try'n throttle the journalists'

  • ji - 2011-03-07 16:21

    another slap on the wrist and then a paid holiday with zuma to another golf day .

  • alousav - 2011-03-07 16:23

    "If" he is found guilty.... there are going to be so many cover ups and lost dockets, and false eye witnesses and excuses that he will come out "squeaky clean" AGAIN!!

      Wedfew - 2011-03-14 10:18

      Its not lost dockets ... Damn its the tokoloshe ... like we really believe that shit!

    And pigs will fly! Ha!Ha!Ha!

  • foulshamnairn - 2011-03-07 16:26

    Zuma's friend, what do you think will happen? He is supposed to be dead by now!!!!!

  • lldoidge - 2011-03-07 16:27

    He'll be like Mc Bride who is still fighting his drink driving charge 4 years later! By the Shaik will be dead as he is terminally ill isn't he?

  • Slapper - 2011-03-07 16:29

    What Action? The Bast**d should never have been let out in the first place and I am sure you already know what he is up to. Totally corrupt bunch would make the Mafia Blush.

  • karenc - 2011-03-07 16:30

    The way he will be dealt with is by giving him more free hours to play golf - that is just the way it is with the ANC Government - look after your buddies and f&^^^k the rest

  • Midcorner - 2011-03-07 16:31

    This is the call of character for the minister,her discission will be influenced one way or another

  • karendb - 2011-03-07 16:33

    So his parole conditions allow him 6 hours on the weekend and 2 hours during the weekend to not be on his death bed!? Do these guys think they are God or what? I didn't know the ANC was so powerful that they could give a person a reprive from dying. I think I better join the ANC and give Zuma a couple of millions under the table - who knows, I may become immortal! How many other people on their death bed can go and play golf for a couple of hours on the weekend and then go back to lying on their death beds - the ANC is amazing!

      Nkulu - 2011-03-07 23:40

      Please don't joke about the power of ANC.. I understand if you have their card it is a ticket to heaven. So why NOT a reprieve from dying

  • Shisstirrer QBE - 2011-03-07 16:34

    Remember OJ Simpson , guess what ? Shaik is going to do an OJ , in other words - walk .

      Perfume - 2011-03-07 21:26

      For all the years that OJ walked he is now serving time....that might just happen to Shaik Shaik Shaik, Shaik your groove thang!!!!!

  • eugenebriel - 2011-03-07 16:34

    For a man with a "TERMINAL ILLNESS" he looks remarkably well and must be if he can still go and play golf.

  • Bosduif - 2011-03-07 16:35

    Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula you may feed your voters farts but for the rest of us try something else.

  • Bachbabe - 2011-03-07 16:38

    Hahahahahaha.....ja, I'm sure you will will go out for a beer - the lot of you!!

  • - 2011-03-07 16:40

    Come on the fact he was playing golf in the first place and not dying or in prison is a joke already. But I bet nothing will come of it as he is a friend with to much knowledge of the presidents dealings which could sink him LOL. If only it were a joke and not real, but affraid again proves how corrupt our elect are, makes me sick to the core.

  • pointblankza - 2011-03-07 16:42

    As an Atheist, the miracle that is Shabir makes me want to question my own non-belief... is it possible that a man who was so terminal that we was paroled to spend his last days in dignity with his family is able to now play golf and drive around Durban, dining on good food and smoking cigars??? Has Jesus returned? (Or whatever..) Does this mean the ANC can now relinquish power??

      Nkulu - 2011-03-07 23:43

      Please spell atheist with a lower case. You are not a belief but a disbelief. Do not mock Jesus.

      Felix - 2011-03-08 09:04

      Well done Nkulu, I'm sure you scored some brownie points with the big guy for that.

  • Piet - 2011-03-07 16:46

    How de f@&k can a man play golf is he is close to dying? The ANC will get some way around the "IF". IF THE DOCKET END UP IN COURT

  • ocon777 - 2011-03-07 16:47

    I thought this guy was terminally ill and on his death bed? How is this shabby character playing golf?

  • peter - 2011-03-07 16:47

    He will only be allowed to play 9 holes and he's handicap will be 18 not scratch.

      Felix - 2011-03-08 09:07

      Who plays golf with a fraudster anyway? They probably give each other chippie ins.

  • braamc - 2011-03-07 16:50

    shame the man is dying apparantly

      Cliff - 2011-03-07 16:57

      Of course the poor little thing! What utter crap is that???

      Other Justin - 2011-03-08 09:20

      I wish he would get on with it then!

  • Cliff - 2011-03-07 16:51

    His right hook isn't terminally ill as the lady reporter can vouch for. What a farce.What a joke.

  • Karoobloed - 2011-03-07 16:51

    But 1st he will have to be found guilty - hahahaha...

  • Mart - 2011-03-07 16:53

    the fact that he is out on parole is a travesty of justice, and is indicative of what South Africans can look forward to more of unless we stop this out of control ANC gravy train. but then again, perhaps the journo took the alleged assault 'out of context' !

  • peter - 2011-03-07 16:54

    He will now have to qualify for the US PGA tour and will not get automatic exemption.

  • nic - 2011-03-07 16:57


  • Firebird - 2011-03-07 16:59

    What is a sick man close to death doing playing golf? Seems he has more privileges than a non convict !!! Oh well I suppose he has already paid off the journalist

  • GT - 2011-03-07 16:59

    That's it. Enough already. Stop sneaking onto the public access Papwa course and start playing your golf at a place with a large electric fence around it so these blerry journalists can stop bothering you whilst you continue on your death defying recovery.

  • Wonderboy - 2011-03-07 17:02

    Yes action will be taken. Journalists will be prohibited from harrasing MR Schaik while he is playing golf.

      thinker - 2011-03-07 17:15

      Carefull she may be charge for invading his privicy

  • Madelane - 2011-03-07 17:04

    I certainly will not be holding my breath....

  • M - 2011-03-07 17:05

    I bet the last R20 in my wallet that his parole conditions will be further relaxed and that he will get his presidential pardon.

  • Hungwe - 2011-03-07 17:09

    The ANC are a bunch of corrupt lying fraudsters, as punishment Shaik the Fake might be banned from 9 holes of golf, or visiting the Gupta family compound for one week. As for his being terminally ill the doctors who came up with that one should all be in prison too.

  • RIMRIM - 2011-03-07 17:13

    If I go to Jail I will take everyone involved in the arms scam including the president down with me. I am above the law. Your sincerely Schabir Shaik PS: I dropped my handicap by 5 points since I got my get out of jail free card

  • Redwine - 2011-03-07 17:16

    Anybody any idea how much time he has spend in hospital since on parole? He bet he did not even have to consult a doctor all this time.

  • Louis - 2011-03-07 17:18

    This crazy lot of clowns. The white policeman who was involved with Winnie "he Goddess" Mandela was suspended immediately, you know why, not because he was guilty but because he is white. Zuma's money mate must first be found guilty before steps can be taken. What bigger circus can you have.

      pointblankza - 2011-03-07 17:25

      With interests like Casper de Vries and farmville, no one will take you seriously.... use it, don't use it..

  • Paul - 2011-03-07 17:18

    Ja Ja Ms Minista!, Why did I think thatShaiks gonna Rattle and Zuma's gonna Roll.:-) Gotta love it. he gets six free hours and two on the week end. Aw when does he get time to wash the BEE MW and take his tablets???? Oh yeah Shakey Babes watch out for Mr Manyi ;-)

  • v3 - 2011-03-07 17:26

    He's *not* terminally ill. He's been raised from the dead. President 783 couldn't wait for Jesus so did it himself

  • steve - 2011-03-07 17:27

    Did the journalist fight back? ....missed opportunity...

  • briansmith702 - 2011-03-07 17:31

    Yeah I will believe it when my pig breeds dogs. There is no way this criminal will ever be punished. Just cheap ANC propoganda to make out they follow the law. Bloody sick, sick sick the whole lot of criminals. Whoever signed off his death bed certificate should be sent to jail for Shaik's time for fraud and corruption.

  • Alpha - 2011-03-07 17:40

    "...if the police investigate and lay charges against Schabir we will do something about that," she said.

  • steve.dupreez - 2011-03-07 17:42

    So, whatcha gonna do madam, hit the scoundrel with a mascara stick? Like hell anything will happen to him, or the Guptas, or JUJU. Protected species!!

  • Tiwonge - 2011-03-07 17:44

    Shaik your ass assets! Phew. What more can i say?

  • Tshane - 2011-03-07 17:52

    And here I was thinking the man was so sick he was on his death bed, it's a miracle he can even donner people now, looks like them fat cigars are good for you or is it the sunlight that rejuvenates him. I got to get me some of that stuff he uses and market it, ill make killing in the marketplace.

  • Mariano Castrillon - 2011-03-07 17:56

    Yes, he will not be allowed more that two cigars per day.

  • Andy49 - 2011-03-07 18:01

    "Action will be taken if Shaik guilty - minister" = AintSee speak for "we will not find our dying comrade guilty", he must be allowed to live out the remainder of his short life with dignity. Yeah right..

  • onetickie - 2011-03-07 18:01

    Course action will be taken. He will be rewarded financially one way or another. Bunch of rotten buggers.

  • Straight Forward - 2011-03-07 18:10

  • Mike - 2011-03-07 18:24

    How old is this woman - does she believe in Father Christmas as well. too mich time with the kindergarten

  • ErG - 2011-03-07 19:02

    Luckily for Shaiky, guilt in "new" SA of ANC is relative .......
