'If you want to take me to court for doing my job, come, baby, come.'

– Lawyer Miguna Miguna who taunted police during the mock inauguration of opposition leader Raila Odinga. He was subsequently deported to Canada.


‘(SA President Jacob) Zuma will leave a legacy of disbelief and embarrassment and a sense of "how could we let this happen?". There is so much disrepute from this era that it is difficult to contemplate.'

– Analyst Susan Booysen


'South Africans are in deep trouble when they find an easy scapegoat to avoid dealing with their problems. This is precisely why the fashionable practice, across the political spectrum, of blaming everything on President Jacob Zuma shows that South Africa is in serious trouble.'

– Steven Friedman, director of the Centre for the Study of Democracy


‘Happily‚ I don’t say anything that I can’t repeat. Not even in the bedroom.’

– Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng who says all his phones are bugged but he is willing to go on record with his views‚ including that SA needs a critical mass of leaders ‘who are not in it for their pockets’
