The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in KwaZulu-Natal has been pummeled for choosing not to press ahead with criminal charges brought against Premier Sihle Zikalala for supposedly ridiculing lockdown guidelines a year ago. 

The DA featured in a statement on Wednesday that ''it shows up all men are not equivalent under the steady gaze of the law in South Africa'', with Zikalala having the option to ''pull off holding possible very spreader, illicit occasions at a medical clinic, while residents were captured for lawfully purchasing goods''. 

On April 27 a year ago, the DA had laid criminal charges against Zikalala dependent on the at that point stage 5 lockdown guidelines. 

DA state security representative Dianne Kohler Barnard said the chief had called fundamental laborers to what exactly must be portrayed as a convention at Clairwood Hospital in eThekwini, in spite of the gazetted guideline on the limitations of development, area 11 B (ii) specifying that ''each social event, as characterized in guideline 1 is restricted, with the exception of burial service as accommodated in subregulation(8)". 

''After seven months, I kept in touch with the NDPP, Advocate Shamilla Batohi, inquiring as to why there had been no advancement in this matter. 

''As per the researching officer, Brigadier Mngcwabe, who I was in contact with week by week, the NPA continued promising a choice, yet not a peep had been approaching," Kohler Barnard said. 

''To hear today that the matter was unobtrusively sneaked by the rug two months prior, on the 28th of December, without even a reaction to my letter, reveals to me that men like Zikalala pull off spurning the law, while normal South Africans, those without ANC associations, were abused without discernment or kindness. 

''We are then left finding out if the deferral corresponding to this body of evidence against the Premier showed that the NPA really prosecutes with dread or favor. 

''Doubtlessly there are an alternate arrangement of laws for the incredible and effectively associated, and another set for most of us. 


''All men, it shows up, are not equivalent under the steady gaze of the law in South Africa. Men like Zikalala will pull off holding possible very spreader, unlawful occasions at an emergency clinic no less, while residents were captured for lawfully purchasing food supplies.''
