State Secrecy Act proposes to overule the constitution.

State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele wants the State Secrecy Act to override  the constitutionally mandated Promotion of Access to Information Act.  See here.

Never mind.  If he gets his way this will just be one more piece of unconstitutional debris a Direct Democracy Forum administration will have to demolish.  Annoying but doable.  The ANC are behaving like they expect to be in power for ever, like the thousand year Reich of Hitler’s fantasies.  I think South Africa has a lesson for them, democracy does not work like that and in the end, civil society will prevail.

The buck stops at the ballot box.
