Giving an overview of some of the big stories in South Africa, political analyst Karima Brown takes a look at brewing suspicions around an investigation into the burglary at the offices of the Chief Justice.
The police have clarified that the trio linked to the break-in provided detailed information about the crime and who might be involved.
Acting National Police Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane announced the arrest of the trio on Wednesday.
Only two of them appeared in court and on charges unrelated to the burglary.
The third person was released.
Brown answers questions around reports that police may have acted prematurely.
Subsequently the commissioner hasn't been able to tell us exactly why these people are being linked to the Chief Justice burglary.— Karima Brown, political analyst
So far institutions like the Institute for Security Studies and other oversight bodies have warned that the police appear to be under pressure because of the nature of the crime and that they arrest first and then investigate later and that this is in fact a dangerous development.— Karima Brown, political analyst
As it stands the facts show us that police are none the wiser and the nation is none the wiser as to exactly where the police investigation is at and we don't have any real suspects linked to this crime.— Karima Brown, Political analyst
