The public spat between South Africa’s Minister of Justice Ronald Lamola and Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu following the latter’s attack on the judiciary and Constitution appears to have no end in sight. This, News24 reports, after Sisulu, on Sunday, in an article again published on Independent Online, admonished Lamola for penning an open letter challenging her remarks which have caused a public outcry. Sisulu also doubled down on her criticism of the country’s Constitution, explaining that it was a man-made and historically contextualised document. Sisulu said the Constitution did not embrace the experience of South Africans as a whole, “especially the poor, the disenfranchised, the marginalised, and the excluded,” stressing that “it has failed in its primary function regardless of how it may offend us to accept such”.
