Former Judge Rex van Schalkwyk’s briefing will demonstrate:
- The Rule of Law stands between a civilised society and tyranny.
- State Capture happened because of a systematic violation of the Rule of Law.
- In the absence of the Rule of Law, doors are wide open to arbitrary political action.
He will discuss recent FMF research that demonstrates that government and particularly Parliament have abandoned the founding values of the Constitution and show a systematic violation of the Rule of Law.
From 23 pieces of national legislation analysed, 21 were drafted with no apparent concern for the Rule of Law.
This is what happened in SA under Zuma. The absence of the Rule of Law enabled the Guptas to flourish.
It must not be allowed to happen again.
