Congratulations to Advocate Andrea Johnson

I don't like it when the authorities make false promises a new prosecutor is replacing Hermione Cronje as special investigations director, the president says she is going to pursue dime of the state capture cases judge Zondo reported about. The truth of the matter is that the NPA doesn't investigate since that capacity was hollowed out of the NPA with the abolition of the Scorpions, the investigative function is wholly with the Hawks the investigation directorate which Cronje established, by direction of the president is a small directorate with a small personnel with no resemblance to the Scorpions both in capacity and strength. Batohi and Ramaphosa have been making promises which they don't fulfill or will only fulfill with mere symbolism, the elephant in the room is the Hawks nobody is talking about them and they are sitting in the corner quietly doodling and occasionally arresting some junior public servants, for CV embellishmentsI have no doubts about her leadership and technical skills I'm just not convinced that the unit is allocated the critical mass of investigators needed to match the task and complex challenges, of corruption cases mention e by Zondo and those that were not reported to the commission. Mind you, Zondo investigated only a few cases emanating from a minority of provinces and SOEs, a one woman show won't make a dent on corruption telling us that she is going to pursue the Zondo recommendations is totally misleading as well, the scope of corruption investigation is far, far bigger than the Zondo scope it needs a huge bureaucracy
