APM failed to uphold the constitution, Justice Chirwa did

0

If a president fails to uphold the constitution he swore to defend, it is of course the singular duty of the courts to remind him of his constitutional responsibilities. Justice James Chirwa must be applauded for doing his job.

As for the politically minded legal advisers at the ministry of justice, please be frank with your political superior and tell him to take seriously and at once put an end to cashgate and looting of public funds. Attacking the judge is both ill-advised and stupid.

The so-called commission of inquiry is a facade aimed at shielding the suspects from accountability. There is no need for an expensive commission filled by political cardres to investigate this criminal issue whose facts are easily ascertainable. There are qualified investigators within the law enforcement agencies who can get to the bottom of this within days, not even weeks.

We know that the government is raising a constitutional crisis out of this precisely as a deflection from what is emerging as a government created mainly to perpetrate fraud on the people.

~ Prof Danwood M Chirwa, University of Cape Town
