Abstract

2018 has been a particularly tough year for most people. In fact, it is a long time since South Africans have said “What a great year”. For most citizens, and foreigners who contribute in so many ways to our economy and culture, it feels like a long, hard slog to nowhere. And when those in the infamous “corridors of power” continue to behave this year in the same way as they did last year – and the year before that down the tunnel of time – it is little wonder that people question the law and the length of time it takes to provide justice, if it ever comes. This year has seen, yet again, the abuse of power and money uncovered in too many places. Those involved plead innocence and, as someone commented, their acts of treason continue to go unpunished. For many it was a huge relief to see Jacob Zuma leave the presidential offices; unfortunately many of his supporters remain in positions of power. There is no-one in cabinet who is completely innocent because, for whatever reason, by their silence they are all complicit – it is just a matter of degree.
