Nomination for chairman of Pikoli ad hoc committee is a criminal

Advocate Pikoli, the previous head of the South African National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), has to sit under the judgement of an ad-hoc committee that may be chaired by a criminal! This criminal is a member of parliament (MP).

After being found in the possession of a stolen car, Mr Monareng was found guilty of trying to bribe a police officer. Being an MP he would have been investigated by the NPA, clearly making this a conflict of interests.

Once again the ANC has proven to the rest of South Africa that their words on fighting crime have no meaning. How in the world can a criminal be the chairman of a committee that is supposed to investigate the fitness of a person who is supposed to head a criminal investigating unit? How can a constitution be so messed up that it allows criminals to be members of parliament.

Truly this is a banana republic led by the morally obtuse!

Mr. Monareng was indeed voted in as co-chair of the ad-hoc committee. The minutes of the meeting where he was selected as co-chair can be found here.
