In other words, the question was the final straw for Zuma. The judgment was certainly unreasonable and illegal if there are no complete records prior to Arthur Fraser. This appeal is being denied with costs. Arther Fraser has no right to insist on his privilege. That privilege does not exist in a vacuum.

These are countries that have sanctioned the US in retaliation to the US sanctions.

source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_sanctions_against_the_United_States#Reasons_for_economic_sanction_against_the_United_States_of_America The economic effects of an economic sanction can affect both the target country and the country that imposed the sanction. One immediate effect for the targeted country will be an increase in price or ban on the targeted exported goods; this can be seen in Mexico, as goods such as steel, pork cheese and apples will become more expensive.

OPINION| Is Jacob Zuma untouchable and above the law?

In a state under judical dictatorship and capture, a hired gun was allegedly mandated to send president Zuma to jail when it affirmed that sentencing of president Zuma was out of ordinary, remember sentencing of Zuma was unconstitutional because it was not a criminal matter but a civil matter in a civil matter, when found guilty, is laible to a fine but a hired gun treated the matter as criminal and it resigned after a white capital's job well doneNow, what will it take to stop them from taking Zuma back to jail just to undermine Arthur Fraser's decision to release Zuma and for exposing the Ankole's crime syndicate, it is their way to respond by continuing to harrass Zuma who is 80 years old what's good for the goose should also be good.

Mayor attends official opening of a borehole project worth 6 million and leaves many in disbelief.

I would say Inflation is a transfer of wealth without either the knowledge or permission of those it’s being transferred from. That qualifies as stealing in my book. It’s become a surrogate for direct taxation, a means for politicians to spend money on programs without presenting voters with the bill and allowing them to make an informed cost benefit judgment.
