    Government or MEC?
    You people are really dumb. Zinthu zosamva. You mean you can not differentiate between Government and MEC. Just being used to stealing and manipulating.
    That is the role of MEC not Government.

In 2000, Adv Ntsebeza was called to the Bar in Cape Town, where he took Silk in 2005, becoming the first African to be conferred Silk status in the history of the Cape Bar. He has practised in the Johannesburg Bar since 2008. He has a passion for Constitutional and Administrative Law, Labour Law, Mining Law and Land Law.
