The only conclusions that can be drawn from the Constitutional Court’s ruling on the social grants/SASSA/CPS debacle are:
- Rules (i.e.) the law can be bent when it suits.
- The Constitutional Court cannot be trusted.
- The Constitution and all it stands for is not worth the paper it is written on.
Irrespective of the enormity of the crisis truth remains truth, lawful remains lawful, unlawful remains unlawful. For the Constitutional Court to have now sanctioned the continuation of a contract they themselves deemed illegal exposes just how rotten to the core things are in South Africa.
General Bantu Holomisa in a tweet released on 17/03/2017 cut to the chase and summed the situation up very succinctly:
General Bantu Holomisa has hit the nail on its proverbial head in his tweet dated 17 March 2017 at 10.
Zuma and his Cabinet have successfully blackmailed the ConCourt to endorse ANC’s cash cow company, CPS.
The ConCourt will of course now set about justifying its actions, enter into some fancy tap dancing and side stepping….. they will lay down the law as to how the process unfolds (what law when you break it yourselves), how tenders are awarded in future (the question must now be asked how free are you of corruption?), the crisis dictated – there was no other option ….blah! blah! blah!
Shame on you – shame, shame, shame. By this you have endorsed corruption and absolute government incompetence. By your ruling you have become party to the whole. ConCourt you were our one hope in the system. Clearly our hope and confidence in you has been sorely misplaced. Now our only sure hope is in God Almighty. No man can be trusted or constitution or high court.
Let this be an eye opener for all South Africans. The only redeeming factor is that poor South Africans will get their grants although the money they receive will be tainted with the smell of corruption.
Psalm 38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
