Thuli Madonsela weighs in on controversial Clicks images"The suggestion that we should have an amnesty-like process is to fish out people who can give us more information about the extent of corruption.""How it happened, who was involved, what in the system enabled it, and where is the money? The idea is to get those that were minor actors, who wouldn't be the kingpins or the main beneficiaries. It would be something like an admin clerk in the system who, out of fear of losing their jobs, participated in the crime," Madonsela said.

From the drama around retrenchments at the SABC and Jacob Zuma facing off against Justice Zondo to the escape of Shepherd Bushiri, these are the stories that engaged IOL readers this week.

Clarity, did she suggest private companies to be investigated somewhere in her report? This is serious misleading of the country. Then we shud do the same to CIT I totally disagree Most dumist thing I have heard so far. So steal steal steal and your forgiven . HELL NO !!!!!! Please Thuli don't loose my respect

Are u high on something, crucify the corrupt no exemptions they know what they have done and it has all been premeditated. To hell with corrupt officials they must burn at the stake. VoetsekANC Oh boy! Amnesty for R2,3 Trillion stolen that the taxpayers will have to pay back while criminals go free! ThuliMadonsela3 WTAF 😠🤬😠🤬😠 It's a NO from me.

I smell what she is “saying”🤦🏻‍♀️ Amnesty my $$$$$ these corrupt individuals should go prison NO amnesty Thuli Madonsela for big people that have done corruption and stealing TAX payers hard earned MONEY WHAT accountable will PEOPLE Admit to There is already an amnesty!!!! No one has been brought to trail ,, what a joke !!

Thuli please shut up How is that possible. The poor vote for a better life and the elected steal their Hopes there is nothing no amnesty for that. It entails lawlessness is key. One o lay beeds to look north of our borders and see who is successful where corruption happens. Only Jail and payback! Rêrig

On condition that every cent is paid back by the looters before amnesty. Absolute rubbish.I hear what Ms Madonsela is saying but there must be no respite in the drive to rid our country of anc thieves, frauds and muderers. So far there are no anc polititions in custody. There can be no mercy for them. Lock them up in prison.

We used to respect this person. 🤔 Yes amnesty..... In jail All criminals in jail must get amnesty too I suggest,Banana Republic.Dissapointing suggestion from Advocate Madontsela stupid Idea... don't say such stupid things prof. uyazincengela,ufunwa ukuthandwa Hai people must be punished for their crimes...angeke

Either she lost her mind or she was paid: Madness Waste of money Nd state resources, let the court of law deal wit corruption It's not a horrible idea. Problem is that this can be used to give amnesty for those who are corrupt. Ideas like these can be considered, but the loopholes they unintentionally create must be looked at prior to any choices being made.

Thuli is annoying now. She speaks rubbish every time she tries to be relevant. That will set tge standard for getting away witj stealing in SA under no circumstances, the siu, afu, npa, and saps must work together and arrest these people and throw them to jail,, they have done a lot of harm to our country

And how will that help us as a kantry? She is out of her mind. This was her good work now her u turn is destroying her public image n respect she earned.Gogo Thuli remain at university leave Zondo n the team to finish. Thugs n thiefs belong to jail. That's crazy. From what angle. They must release all that are currently in all South African prisons. What precedence will it create. O phusha efe Agenda?

Like father, like son......Zuma is an example. Corruption amnesty is a really bad suggestion. If this turns into reality, as it usually do, my willingness to pay tax will dissipate rapidly... This woman Thuli Madonsela is calling for war. How much money the state capture commission of inquiry have asked .When she was sitting on that comfortable seat masquerading as the real enemy of corruption. Her real enemy was personal ( Jacob Zuma ) klaar

with cost of investigation involves and almost everyone in the ANC involved, I agree but only if amnesty means voluntary coming to confess your crimes and returning what you stole or benefited She called for state capture commission alleging rampant corruption now she is calling for a corruption Amnesty 🙄 Has the net closed in on pre-paid political activists? Let it play, best constitution in the world.

Even though she states forgive the small fry as they want to catch the big fish. No. It cannot happen. As the small fry will see they got away with it and carry on until they become the big fish. I see what she wants. But it will not work. All must come to book No. There should be no such thing at all. They have stolen the money from it's own people. The people needed that. Not them. They must be held accountable for every cent they are responsible for taking. I disagree with this fully. Held accountable. Face jail time. It is theft

Will they pay back the money? That is what we should be interested in and not forgiving these thieves. Pull another card please cos you just pulled out an incorrect one. No to corruption amnesty jvnaidoo1 Then i want tax amnesty.🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾

Nooo Ridiculous Media sometimes misquote people i doubt if she can say that 💪 When will Thuli learn to keep quiet? The so called ' give them another shanz' mindset . Sick. Ma'am Thuli, amnesty must not only be given to those who steal in suits with nice ties and shoes. If it given to them it has to be given to others as well. In that case where do we begin? Theft is theft and if the law condemns it then the culprits have to face the consequences.

I agree Shame, I suggest an intellectual amnesty for Thuli No Significant conviction of top officials yet but Thuli is already talking of amnesty For once I have to disagree with you vehemently, Madam ! Soo much for someone behind the 'Zuma pay back the money' chaos. Hhey, waze wangphoxa lomama when I was convinced she was a role model. ?🤦🏿‍♀️

everybody need to end up in jail ! So what of our law enforcement agencies what of our security cluster? The justice system and the courts? The intelligence? R they useless? Failed, incompetence disregarded and hopeless in ending corruption? If so bring back out taxes & let us Restructure the constitution

Funie_the1 State capture commission has gobbled 1 billion and has nothing to show of it and its money never to be recovered that could have gone into service delivery. Thulis idea might save the country trillions and help flush out criminals who should never have to hold public office again It's a no from me.

I'm starting to lose respect for her when she makes such comments. How many people have lost their lives and are still are due to corrupt leaders. A lot of people have been robbed of their human rights yet she only thinks of the perpetrator more than the victim Corruption is unacceptable and should not be tolerated. Those involved should not receive amnesty but brought to book and should pay back what in fact has been “stolen” from all South Africans.

Tell her she’s mad Amnesty to only who returns the money with interes VoetsekMadonsela Such a DISAPPOINTING suggestion...😖 Professor Madonsela, please stop this, you're upsetting the people, we dont want amnesty, we want justice for all the suffering ANC corrupt government and cadres have inflicted on SA people, and for the destruction of this country.

The ordacity Thuli of taday Wow so easy to get away in South Africa Because her friends are on the list to Zondo commission That's insanity. And anyone who agrees to go along with it is Insane. Not unless we as a country set a trap for them and say we'll go along with it just so we can root out and deal with them ourselves

Please put this has-been out to pasture. Dear God can anyone sprout more shit than that. Seriously nobody is going to rest until they are all in jail Many people highlighting the state of SA as a result of the corruption. How many voters suffering at hands of this corrupt government return Anc to power after each election.

She is only saying it because some EFF members are going to be exposed at the StateCapture !! She supports EFF ThuliMadonsela_ Amnesty yokunuka yini ngabantu benkohlakalo yeyi akakahle lo mama kwangathi kwayena usengena nenja esontweni Thuli Madonsela are you suggesting amnesty for these corrupt thieves who stole BILLIONS from the poorest of the poor, Are you mad? Rather get our money back and let them rot in jail where they belong as would be done in any civilized country.

Has she seen levelofpoverty in communities, who live with raw sewerage, entrepreneurs not funded, services meant to serve/protect almost rendered useless... SAPS, NPA, bordercontrol, illegalimports, foreignnationals not paying4services & tax... Who bribed you? Aikona!! I am sorry but even for the criminals (at the bottom of the totem pole turning state witness) being granted amnesty - stealing is stealing! It is NOT a case of “but I stole less” That is the same as saying “rob an old lady but not a bank!”Come on! What are we teaching our youth?

Why in which fuc*ing country do you get amnesty for stealing and defrauding the state? Looting PPE money is the same as murdering South African people what the looters need is the death penalty and you should lead be the leader. I don't agree with Thule Madonsela on this one. NO WAY. People must be punished for deliberate corruption. Everything was planned and calculated. We are struggling and working very hard to make a living. Taxes and country's debt level very high. NO WAY.

She had a strong wine I quess I loved her but this begs me to differ Crazy Nonsense Why should they now have amnesty Not a great idea. Madonsela is drunk on failed ideology. Not in our life time, thieves has tooo much to account for No over my dead body.Will never accept it. Yes, we’ve been having that for the last 26 years.

Seems she has a dog in the fight! Are you also captured dear... Respect the power of media, use to like des nonsense🐷 Who cares what Madonsela suggest..Fudge her... Country going to shit because of this corrupt Government nauseated READ: Thuli Madonsela say sacrifice the small fish for bigger 1 'The suggestion that we should have an amnesty-like process is to fish out people who can give us more information about the extent of corruption.' 'How it happened, who was involved, what in the system enabled it,

Actually, that is a brilliant idea. How will amnesty stem the scourge? How will amnesty restore trust in the law? 😤😤😤 Voetsek Is she jas? Why corruption Amnesty now, she must continue to serve he white master It makes sense she's rich. She’s crazy.... Misleading headlines again! I am beginning to wonder if the current crop of journos or editors actually understand what is said or written. Plea bargaining, which us actually what she is suggesting has been around for a long time.

OK so she's basically saying that we must let criminals get away with stealing from the country. Makes me wonder who she knows that's involved. Early this year Rating Agencies gave us junk status for doing nothing about corruption. For not bringing anyone to justice. Now Thuli urges us to officially DO NOTHING about it. And dish out free amnesties. She is a hypocrite.

Hebana i liked you waitse..🙄🙄 Does she know more than it was reported? State of capture inquiries should stop? She is becoming big headed. Probay she is involved No, we want them to pay the money back and go to jail. Klaar. Thula Modonsela No!!!! Justice must be served... Tired of politicians being above the law.

Lost it. Now although she may not to be aware of it, her public utterances seriously undermine the work of DCJ Zondo, the NPA, the SIU and the Hawks. Of all people they need her support most. What's wrong with her? 😁 and what about our stolen money-if they pay back ALL then ok. With billions stolen by ANC from SA's making them beggars? Jobless, homeless, hungry, uneducated, 4500 schools without toilets & sanitation, living in cellpools of squalor, on streets of fetid refuse & running sewage, beside waterways floating with faeces & in abject poverty!

To protect her handlers. Guys watch the video I think she has a point 🤷🏽‍♀️ forgive the small fish to catch the big ones Only way to stop corruption is to cancel the monster that mandela,cyril and mbheki created tenders☠☠☠ And what should we do with the report she wrote of 'state capture' Can someone be presecuted for wasting state resources? Please assist.

No amnesty at all all criminals must be jailed period I have tons of respect for Prof Madonsela but can't see any sense in her suggestion. It will not save SA instead it will cause just more harm. We have the manpower in SA to send them all to jail and take back the money. Our criminal justice system must rise up to the occasion.

I can't workout amnesty well to get ur point Prof. What about the money lost while we are in debt? Years 2 come those in official positions can also trick n suggest any available escape boat such as amnesty. I suggest pay back 2 settle our loan. Did they giv her some?She is silly2think that it is okay 4us2 let pple go richour expense when we hav remained poor paying unaffordable taxes2b stolen&2give politicians& their country friends, feeding the whole of Afrc2secure investmnets from where citizens hav been imposed onus

She's drunk on stellenbosch wine No no no!!!!!! All the thugs must go to jail for stealing from the poorest of the poor they must rotten in jail no TRC we still waiting for the truth that never came forth from Eugene De Kock and key After they will return all the money that they stollen. I will be nice, they can keep the interest.

I understand she is no more public protector, so she has abondend the ethic behavior and developed enthusiasm to corrupt people Cause she and cyril are going to go down when no1 spills the beans And that proposal is made after the country has spent R1billion into Zondo Commission. I am starting to think that these commissions are the most thing that's milking our country's coffers

Only when we get amnesty to poverty... 500billion messed up in 2 months then we suggest amnesty. Yoh ngigeza izandla struuu No ways criminals must be punished
