  • NEWS ANALYSIS: ANC’s two-thirds problem means honeymoon is over

    THE African National Congress (ANC) ran into an unlikely problem in the national legislature last week, an issue not comparable to its regular clashes with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). The ANC had rammed its choice for the position of inspector-general of intelligence — its former MP Cecil Burgess — through the joint standing committee on intelligence (JSCI). Indeed, it is considered so important that a special majority of two-thirds of all MPs is required to approve a nomination for appointment by the president.

  • Judge Masipa got it right – on the law

    Masipa cleared the athlete of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, instead finding him guilty of culpable homicide and of one firearm-related charge. This was because Masipa found that the state had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pistorius had the necessary intention to murder Steenkamp. Despite finding the athlete was a “very poor witness”, Masipa accepted that Pistorius’s version – that he genuinely believed there was an intruder in his house – could reasonably possibly be true, which is all that was necessary for an acquittal on murder. Masipa’s verdict has created a ruckus for a number of reasons, with the most common criticism relating to her application of dolus eventualis.
