PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma has done it again.

The ink had not yet dried on the Constitutional Court papers condemning his refusal to accept the public protector’s report on his quarter of a billion rand “renovation” of his Nkandla homestead when he addressed traditional leaders and told them they should avoid the courts. “I’ll be very happy that we solve the African problems in the African way because if we solve them only legally they become too complicated,” said Zuma. Think about that for a moment. Did the president of our country say that the courts could not resolve African problems effectively? Whoever writes his speeches should probably get hold of a copy of our constitution and study it.
