The story opens with a first-person reflection on the protagonist's kidnapping, then segues quickly to two weeks earlier, when events began to build.
As a result of the pressure applied by the apartheid government on Mozambique, he was forced to leave Mozambique in January Museveni chairs the Great Lakes Regional Initiative, a grouping of regional presidents overseeing the peace process in Burundi, where several armed Hutu groups took up arms in against a government and army dominated by the Tutsi minority that they claimed had assassinated the first president elected from the Hutu majority.
South African Arms Deal Zuma became embroiled in a corruption controversy, one of many, after his financial advisor, Schabir Shaikwas charged with corruption and fraud. Bulelani Ngcukathe national director of Public Prosecutions at the time, investigated both Zuma and the Chief Whip of the ANC, Tony Yengeniafter allegations of abuse of power were levelled against them.
This concerned improper influence in the controversial arms deal, and the question of financial benefit as a result of such influence.
While Yengeni was found guilty, the case was dropped against Zuma, with Ngcuka stating, " The media mis-quoted Squires with the phrase "A generally corrupt relationship" existed between Zuma and Shaikwhereas these exact words do not appear in the court transcripts.
Mbeki told a joint sitting of parliament that "in the interest of the honourable Deputy President, the government, our young democratic system and our country, it would be best to release the honourable Jacob Zuma from his responsibilities as Deputy President of the republic and member of the cabinet.
This left Zuma open to being recharged with corruption as soon as the NPA completed preparing its case. A conviction and sentence to a term of imprisonment of more than one year would have rendered Zuma ineligible for election to the South African Parliament, and consequently he would not have been eligible to serve as President of South Africa.
Various media reports had incorrectly reported that the charges against Zuma had been dismissed. In paragraph 47 of the Judgment, Judge Nicholson wrote: The obligation to hear representations forms part of the audi alteram partem principle.
What is required is that a person who may be adversely affected by a decision be given an opportunity to make representations with a view to procuring a favourable result. The affected person should usually be informed of the gist or the substance of the case, which he is to answer.
Judge Nicholson found that there were various inferences to be drawn from the timing of the charges levelled against Zuma such as the fact that he was charged soon after he was elected president of the ANC which would warrant a conclusion that there had been a degree of political interference by the Executive arm of government.
Judge Nicholson writes in paragraph of his judgement: This factor, together with the suspension of Mr Pikoli, who was supposed to be independent and immune from executive interference, persuade me that the most plausible inference is that the baleful political influence was continuing.
In paragraph of the Judgement Judge Nicholson went on to write: There is a distressing pattern in the behaviour which I have set out above indicative of political interference, pressure or influence. It commences with the "political leadership" given by Minister Maduna to Mr Ngcuka, when he declined to prosecute the applicant, to his communications and meetings with Thint representatives and the other matters to which I have alluded.
It is certainly more egregious than the "hint or suggestion" of political interference referred to in the Yengeni matter.
It is a matter of grave concern that this process has taken place in the new South Africa given the ravages it caused under the Apartheid order.
The NDPP soon announced its intention to appeal the decision. It was improper for the court to make such far-reaching "vexatious, scandalous and prejudicial" findings concerning me, to be judged and condemned on the basis of the findings in the Zuma matter.Review: How We Get Stuck, and How We Get Unstuck: A Review and Muse A Review of Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey’s Immunity to .
