It was with incredulity that I read the interview given by Yunis and Mo Shaik in
response to the Supreme Court of Appeal's dismissal of their brother Schabir's
appeal against his fraud and corruption conviction (November 7)... from R George
Yunis Shaik warned that Schabir's upheld conviction and,
therefore, the possibility of Jacob Zuma's re-trial, will affect the destiny of
South Africa and, as a result, tensions will again rise in the country.
The inference was that a successful appeal would have been in the best
interest of the country and, thereby, prevent possible divisiveness and
violence. What self-serving nonsense.
Shaiks seem to just ignore the fact that Schabir is an unscrupulous criminal who has used the second-highest
ranking South African politician, and others, for his own personal enrichment.
Any tension, divisiveness and violence will be directly
attributable to him.
