Earlier this year, as senior graft-busting prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach’s internal disciplinary hearing was underway at the National Prosecuting Authority’s offices in Silverton, we made a desperate attempt to get to the heart of the incredibly convoluted story and explain why regular South African’s should care about it. The hashtag #SAsMostComplicatedStoryYouShouldCareAbout was coined. Now Part Two of that complex soap opera is playing out in the antiquated, plush Palace of Justice in Pretoria, where lobby group Freedom Under Law is taking on the Richard Mdluli affair. MANDY WIENER has been sitting in the old jury box there. She tries to make sense of it all.
