Munusamy shared her analysis on the Afternoon Drive with Stephen Grootes.
It is up to his lawyers to devise a new legal strategy because I think they have tried every possible twist and turn to fend of the charges now for 15 years.Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Black Star
With the new conditions, I think it requires new thinking legally and politically.Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Black Star
He is not really a political force to be reckoned with, what I think he might do is still try and play the victim card. Some political leaders in KwaZulu Natal will feel obliged to at least attend his trial and offer support so that people don't feel that his organisation is now shafting him.Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Black Star
But the problem is that he has already been drawn into the ANC's election campaign and that is extremely damaging for the ANC.Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso Black Star
