It was pretty good viewing over at the Constitutional Court earlier today – that’s if you’re no fan of JZ, of course. He won’t be very stoked with what’s gone on.

The Constitutional Court regarding Zuma and Nkandla is currently live – Watch it here.
Bheki Cele – don’t we just love him in the news… Follow the next of his antics as he heads to the constitutional court, and keeps the papers full of humour and hilarity.
Opposition parties are in strong agreement with the Constitutional Court’s ruling that the legislation providing for the dissolution of the Scorpions and their replacement by the Hawks was constitutionally invalid.

Opposition parties have welcomed this decision.
