When herd behaviour is used for selfishness, all you’re left with is a smug sense of entitlement, writes Charlene Naidoo.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's impartiality is called into question after Mosebenzi Zwane, a former minister she is supposedly investigating, attends her 50th birthday party.
The battle to remove Gordhan and ultimately President Cyril Ramaphosa from office is in full swing and led by rogues like Mosebenzi Zwane, writes Adriaan Basson.
Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane has dismissed claims that critical information implicating ANC secretary general Ace Magashule and former minister Mosebenzi Zwane in the Vrede dairy farm scheme was removed from the Public Protector's report by her instruction.
The former head of the Free State department of agriculture, Peter Thabethe, has told the commission of inquiry into state capture that he had been summoned by the Public Protector's office last week to give evidence about the Estina dairy farm case.
