BUSHIRI: What Looked Like Stealing Is Said To Be Standard Practice, But No One Buys It! [Opinion]

Now, what South Africa saw at the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday was rather interesting. What we saw as stealing was supposedly not stealing and that is according to IOL.

The allegations that there were documents that were stolen were slammed by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development and that left us confused.

The way that piece of paper was quickly taken as soon as the Magistrate got up just raise a lot of eyebrows and even if this has been cleared up somehow, it just still does not sit well with some people.

It is said that investigations were conducted, supposedly to make sure that the Magistrate's court notes were still there and as Department spokesperson, Steve Mahlangu has put it, everything was still there.

I suppose this makes everything clear to those were a bit confused about all of this.

What was also said is that a clerk of the court can retrieve the charge sheet because it is standard practice.

Basically, we can conclude that what was done there was allowed and no documents were removed from the courtroom, as Mahlangu puts it.

Go to for more on this.
