State Capture Inquiry

'It is time for the NPA, Saps and the criminal justice sector to do its job'

With the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture in full swing and with former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi's testimony also incriminating himself, Sandile a caller on The Eusebius Mckaiser Show questions whether all those involved in wrongdoing will be brought to justice?

READ: Can Agrizzi's testimony be used against him in a court of law?

Even though this is just a commission of inquiry, don't they deserve their day in court? Are we a people that sit back and say ok they have now stolen, its ok, they can now continue with their lives? Don't they deserve their day in court?

Sandile, caller

He adds that as a people we sit back and only complain without doing anything, allowing those that did wrong to get away scot-free.

Eusebius told Sandile not to be too harsh on himself.

You are not the NPA, you are not the Saps, you are not an economic crime-fighting unit head or employee. As civil society, we put pressure on elected officials to do their job and we must kick them out of office by not voting for them if they mess up the criminal justice eco-system. So we do have some power you and I.

Eusebius McKaiser, presenter

He says the lion share of responsibility for going after people for apparent wrongdoing lies with the police and the NPA.

Let's look out to see what they will do with the facts and the evidence of apparent wrongdoing that have emerged in these hearings in front of our eyes.

Eusebius McKaiser, presenter

It is time for the NPA, the Saps and the rest of the criminal justice sector to its job.

Yet another caller, Gustas says if South Africans are going to wait for people to vote differently, we will never move this country forward.

I say that because there are people in this nation who will always vote for the African National Congress (ANC) even if they lose their jobs. A different approach is required in this country and that approach should be that we must choose our own president.
