Milking us dry at Estina isn't a crime for the Capturati - it's a transaction

Shame doesn't come into the equation when you have no idea that you've done something wrong

On Monday, local media reported that the Guptas would be getting their Estina dairy cash back after they won their court case against the National Prosecuting Authority.

This seemed like a strange thing to claim, given that the Guptas will be getting our Estina diary cash back, but then what do I know about the law?

The verdict triggered a self-righteous roar from Captured Twitter, where Zumistas poured onto the digital streets to proclaim that a “real court” had dealt a blow to White Monopoly Capital and that our justice system was magnificent, except, obviously, when it ruled against Jacob Zuma or the Guptas and was clearly the plaything of George Soros.

But beyond the hilarious hypocrisy of Zuma’s fart-catchers, the verdict was a useful reminder of the current state of play.

I’ve always been dazzled by the chutzpah of the people who've looted this country.
