The Inkatha Freedom Party welcomes the decision handed down in the North Gauteng High Court today which set aside the decision taken by then Acting National Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Mokotedi Mpshe, to drop the corruption charges against President Jacob Zuma, on the basis that this decision was irrational and without substantive foundation.
IFP Chief Whip in Parliament, Mr Narend Singh MP said, “Once again, justice has prevailed over political manipulation and machinations. What is of grave concern, and what was actually remarked upon by the court, was the indictment against Mr Mpshe that he ignored his oath of office, which seems to be becoming the order of the day under this Government. In a constitutional democracy such as ours, this constitutes the gravest of violations and affronts against the rule of law and should not be without the most stringent of sanction.”
