The Sunday World reported that Nelson Mandela’s grandson had a case of drunken driving against him withdrawn because a certain police captain failed twice to bring the docket to court. According to the newspaper reports this young man’s alcohol content in the blood had exceeded the accepted legal limit.
The prosecutor tried to persuade the magistrate to postpone the case so that the matter of the disappearance of the docket could be resolved but the magistrate refused to grant a postponement. Was the magistrate and the police captain bought off? This needs probing. Aren’t we all equal before the law or are some more equal than others?
