"The judiciary shouldn’t have to rely on SAPS for protection, because SAPS answers to the executive." - Mmusi Maimane

The judiciary is a direct threat to Zuma’s state capture project and he is using all available levers to fight it. For the Zuma mafia, nothing is sacred.

BREAKING: We are shocked at the news that the Office of Chief Justice has been robbed.

This is an attack on our judiciary which we must all condemn. Like the robbery at the HSF, we view this as an act of intimidation.

We call on SAPS and crime intelligence to do everything possible to ensure those who stole from the OCJ are brought to book as soon as possible.

We have long held that Bathabile Dlamini manufactured the grants payment crisis in order to force SASSA to renew its invalid contract with CPS.

There have also been media reports this weekend that Zuma’s adviser, Michael Hulley, held special meetings with Dlamini and top officials at SASSA to ensure that the contract with CPS is renewed.

Public Protector must investigate relationship between Dlamini and CPS - Democratic Alliance
We have confirmation that no new contract exists between CPS and SASSA for the delivery of social grants come 1 April.
