Opinion: Govt forces civil society to approach the courts

Government officials leave civil society no other choice than to seek justice through the judicial system, says presenter Redi Tlhabi.

This comes after the High Court in Pretoria ruled that Berning Ntlemeza must step down from the position of head of the Hawks immediately.

There is no other choice, when those who are entrusted with our well-being ignore the law, make irrational appointments and do as they please.
