Hawks robbery could be a war between intelligence agencies: Brown

Political analyst, Karima Brown says the most recent robbery comes at a time when citizens are complaining that State institutions are being used for narrow factional and political purposes. Two laptops were taken during the security breach at the National Director of Public Prosecution's offices in Pretoria.

The police Minister and his deputy are saying this is an inside job and could be an intelligence war between difference agencies.

We need to understand how and what is behind it.

Brown also questioned Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane's decision not to oppose Parliament, Absa and the Reserve Bank. Three weeks ago, Mkhwebane ordered Parliament to amend the Constitution to change the mandate of the central bank.

That led to the bank, Absa and Parliament itself to go to court against her findings before she said on Monday that she would not oppose the bank’s application.

Mkhwebane’s decision to not oppose the Reserve Bank’s application means that her finding that its mandate must be changed will now be set aside by a judge.
