Oy, I know it's hot outside (Jsec baby) and there is low activity on this here bored.

But let's talk about character for a second or two.
That which builds you and shapes your destiny.
In society we laud people with character and make them our leaders or esteemed members of society.

Now here is where it gets sticky for South Africa.
Character (or good) character dictates that when you're actions are harmful and are at the detriment of the collective you have to stand down.
It's good character sacrifice and all. Right?

So let's take the judge whose surname means white but wont shake the hand of a white judge who is actually black. And let's forget for a second that he was effectively found to be guilty.

How can you have grown a** men calling and steaming at Kriegler on radio and defending a man with clear questionable character?
It seems that in South Africa, as a leader or have prominence, all you need to do is scream conspiracy and clog up our justice system that take 5 years to sentence brutal rapist and then be found guilty or get off under a dark cloud...
Here's the list...
*Hlophe
*Zuma
*Nkola
*Mcbright
*Shaik
ect

Now I say where is the character from these men we choose to lead us and safe-guard our constitutions?
No one wants to go to jail, even me, but when shit hits the fan, if you have character you don't drag everyone into the cesspool.

That's what I'm talking about. Let's separate the circumstance from the character.
Guilty or not guilty or victim of circumstance?
Would a person of character almost bring a country to a civil war or lawlessness.
Or be found guilty get paroled under the guise of dying soon only to oulive even Riaan Cruywagen.

Character! Character!

You know what- he fell on his own sword. So as arrogant and as out-of-touch as he proved character.
