Selebi Sentence: "A Rare Instance of Justice"



So true, and I am thrilled to hear it. My toes are absolutely curling with delightful schadenfreude at seeing the complete humiliation of that pseudo-intellectual Thabo Mbeki who defended his pal right through and asked everyone to trust him...Beautiful! Mmm-mmm-mmm-MMMMMMMM!....Of course, Selebi has a two week reprieve before embarking on his "new life" but I can't help wondering, if this was not Mbeki's pal, if instead this was Zuma's pal, would the outcome have been the same?

And I'm still troubled by the fact that Jacob Zuma has got off Scott free from 783 counts of fraud without a trial. I'm also wondering about old Shaik, is he dead yet? LOL, no of course not, he's playing golf tomorrow...It's not what you know, it's who you know...Isn't Azania an amazing jungle?!

Former national police chief Jackie Selebi's 15-year jail sentence is a "rare instance of justice for corrupt cadres", the Democratic Alliance said on Tuesday.

This marked the end of one of the most controversial trials in South African history, DA spokeswoman Dianne Kohler-Barnard said.

"Controversial because of the numerous obstacles placed in the way of due process and the law in trying to bring this criminal to book and controversial because we as a country are almost completely unfamiliar with the idea of a corrupt official, connected to the ANC, actually going to prison," she said.

As Selebi came to grips with the idea of prison, so too should the government think about the integrity of a police structure that was for years led by an individual who on Tuesday joined the ranks of the very criminals from which the police were supposed to protect society.

"The reason was cadre deployment and cadre deployment alone, and that ANC-driven policy needs to be scrapped," Kohler-Barnard said. - Sapa

Just had a look at Rooster's site...No followers or comments at all. Hell that's got to hurt...In fact his entire raison d'ĂȘtre rests on the SWC, nothing else of substance...In point of fact, I don't know why we offer him a soap box here on ILSA...Seriously. But hey, I'm just one moderator...

Do you really think he's going to jail for 15 years? Fat chance! He's gonna be out in no time with same lame excuse and a hero's welcome.
He, like Shaik, knows a few things that are making his comrades in the ANC very nervous. He's going to blackmail his way out of jail...watch this space.

And as for the chicken... he/she comes here only for some attention and swiftly finds it. Ignore the troll!!!

Nope, my prediction is that he is a lamb for Zuma's alter. A much needed one too. Zuma needs to demonstrate that he is dealing with corruption, and who better to sacrifice that Mbeki's old buddy, Selebi? LOL, The real criminal, JZ, would have spent at least an equal time in an orange overall if he had gone to trial as honestly as Selebi did. LOL...

Selebi may just hang himself in jail. Just a guess.

I would also like to ask Interpol secretary general Ronald Noble what he thinks of Selebi now as he was quoted saying not too long ago:"If they have a case against him, charge him ... give him the dignity he deserves. Mr Selebi is an honourable man,"

Hey guys, where have you all been for the past twenty years? This is Africa. If you seriously think this crooked nigger will spend one day behind bars, you haven´t been paying attention.
It´s smoke and mirrors, in other words. plain old fashioned, BULLSHIT.
LOL

The crooked nigger may very well stay in prison for quite a while because he was a friend of Thabo Mbeki, not Jacob Zuma. If Mbeki had won at Polokwane, it would have been Zuma who would have gone to jail, Selebi would have kept his job and his power.
