Phumzile's burglars walk free
In what is even more embarrassing than the original security breach, the two suspects in the burglary on Deputy President Phumzile Mhlambo-Ncguka's home have been released through a lack of evidence.

Whilst many people used to theft and crime carried poorly hidden grins when the Deputy President was found to be a victim, they will be wringing their hands with glee now that she has been a victim of the all too familiar "charges dropped through lack of evidence" scenario. Let's hope that this may spark Phumzile into action to address the vast shortcomings in our policing service.
