‘Sick’ Zulu may get early parole
cris makaye
DURBAN businessman Prince
Siso Zulu could be a free man
 by December and may end up
spending most of his remaining
 jail term in a hospital ward at
Westville Prison.
 Authorities say Zulu is eligi
 ble for 28 months of parole and
remission of his three-year prison
sentence in terms of President
Jacob Zuma’s recent amnesty for
certain categories of prisoners.Zulu was sentenced after twostudents were killed and 10 peo
ple injured in an accident involv 
ing his BMW X5 in 2008.
He handed himself over toprison authorities on Satur
day and moved straight to the
Medium B hospital section. This
is the same facility where con
 victed fraudster Schabir Shaikspent most of his prison term
 before being given early parole.
KwaZulu-Natal Correc
- tional Services spokesperson,
 Nokuthula Zikhali, said Zulu
could be in hospital for 21 days.
“But he could be kept there forlonger, depending on his health,”Zikhali said. “This is normal pro
cedure for every prisoner before being sent to a cell.
But a prison source said: “New 
prisoners are only accommo-
dated in the hospital when they arrive in prison with injuries oracute illness. I think this is hap
pening because Zulu is being
given preferential treatment.”Lonwabo Dandala, Zulu’s law 
 yer, said he was not aware that
his client was in the prison hospi
 tal. He said that another attempt would be made in the Pietermar
itzburg High Court on Friday for
leave to take Zulu’s case to theSupreme Court of Appeal.“We don’t have much hope in
 that process because we have
 been allocated Judge Piet Koen,
 the same judge who dismissed
his application for appeal. If we
fail, we will petition SCA judges.”
Dandala said he was also talk
ing to victims of Zulu’s accident with a view to pursuing alterna
 tive dispute resolution options.Misile Msweli, one of the vic
 tims of the accident, said: “If they approach us we will sit down and talk. As Christians, we believe in
Outa’s case ‘too strong’
miael Appel
THE South African NationalRoads Agency Limited (San
ral), in a letter from their legal
 team yesterday, announced they 
 would not be appealing the April
28 decision by Judge Bill Prinsloo
 to temporarily halt e-tolling.
The e-tolling system was
halted pending a full court review of Sanral’s decision to implement
open road tolling with the fund
ing model, in particular, to be
scrutinised along with the nan
cial viability and social impact of  the system on motorists.
 An urgent interdict against the implementation of e-tolling
on April 30 was successfully led by the Opposition to Urban Toll
ing Alliance (Outa).
Chairperson of Outa WayneDuvenage told The New Age:
“They (Sanral) weighed up the
ruling and the strength of our
case was such that their appeal would not have worked.“Our case is too strong. Now 
 we move to round two of our
application, so we are just waiting
for all the records and documen
 tation from all the parties includ
ing the Department of Transport
and Sanral.
“We want all the recordsand then we can decide on acourt date (for the review) on
e-tolling.”Eorts to reach Sanral chair
person Tembakazi Mnyaka were unsuccessful at the time of going
 to print.
DA and cosatu in street fght
FIERY EXCHANGE: A member of the DA Youth League, left, takes aim with a toy gun in a confrontation with members of Cosatu, right, during their march to Cosatu House yesterday.
March widens rift, say analysts
Siyaoa mkwaazi
 YESTERDAY’S clash would
further strain relations between
 the DA and Cosatu following
 the public spat between Helen
Zille and Zwelinzima Vavi, ana
lysts said.
Wits University political ana-
lyst Daryl Glaser said it wouldhave been wiser for the DA tomarch on the Union Buildings
or Parliament to demand theimplementation of the youth
 wage subsidy. He said there waslegitimate debate to be heard on
 the youth wage subsidy.
“The DA certainly has a right
 to march in defence of its posi
 tion and this march was appar
ently agreed with the police.
Whether it was a good idea to
march on Cosatu headquarters
is another matter,” said Glaser.
“It could set a precedent that
 the DA comes to regret. Doesit really want Cosatu members
marching on its own headquar
 ters whenever it disagrees
strongly with the DA?”
Head of politics at Stellen
 bosch University Amanda
Gouws said the DA was trying to assert its political authority 
 by showing Cosatu that they 
could also march about issues they felt strongly about. “The
DA and Cosatu have never seen
eye to eye on labour issues. I
 think this will strain relations with Cosatu and the ANC.Prof Tinyiko Maluleke of theUniversity of SA described the
march as a result of deteriorat
ing relations between Cosatu
and the DA. He said both par
 ties failed to handle the matter
“Everyone has a right to anopinion and to take action butCosatu is not a government or
nance ministry. There was
also no need for Cosatu to call
on its members to block the
UNITED: DAparliamentaryleader LindiweMazibuko,Helen Zilleand nationalspokespersonMmusiMaimane.
Warre maoa
WHAT started as a peacefulmarch ended with chaos and bloodshed sparked by missile-
 throwing confrontations between
 the DA and the Congress of SA
Trade Unions (Cosatu) yesterday.Seven people were injured and
 three vehicles damaged when
members of Cosatu barred the DA
from marching to the federation’s
oces in Braamfontein, Johan
The bone of contention was the youth wage subsidy, for which the
DA has accused Cosatu of hav 
ing blocked the government from
Hundreds of DA members
 walked to Cosatu oces on Jor
risen Street, Braamfontein, tohand over a memorandum of demands. As they were about500m away from the building,
 tempers ared up and confronta
 tions followed.Hundreds of Cosatu members, who were waiting for the DA pro
 testers outside Cosatu premises,
ran up to the approaching pro
 testers. This was followed by an
exchange of insults. Rocks and
several other objects ew from one
side to the other, causing damage
 to the windscreen of the truck car
rying DA leader Helen Zille, parlia
mentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko
and other personnel.
Police had their hands full in
 trying to keep angry people from
 both warring sides at bay. Busi
ness operations on Jorissen and
Melle streets were halted as shop
owners shut their doors for fear of 
 being looted.
 Addressing the crowd, Zille
accused Cosatu of thwarting the
government’s eorts to create jobs
for the unemployed youths.
“Today we are marching to sup
port millions of people who are
 unemployed. Cosatu does not sup
port the unemployed, but the DA
cares for them,” Zille said in Xhosa
and English.“Every single nation and every 
single society looks after young
people. No one elected Cosatu to
government but we, as the DA,
 were elected by you.”Zille said the DA was introduc
ing the youth wage subsidy in theWestern Cape.“We want to give young peopleskills so that they can work andght poverty,” she said.
Zille was interrupted by a small
Cosatu crowd that ran to the DA
 truck, but the police intervened.
She and her entourage were sub
sequently whisked away, bundled
into the VIP vehicle that drove o.
The DA marchers nally gave
 up and left, but Cosatu followed
 them. Police used teargas to dis
perse the rampaging crowd.
Gauteng police spokesperson
Lt-Col Tshisikhawe Ndou con
rmed the casualties and vehicledamages.“Seven people were treated forminor injuries. I cannot reveal the
extent of vehicle damage at this
stage,” Ndou said.
Johannesburg metro policespokesperson Chief Superinten
dent Wayne Minnaar said all theincidents would be investigated.
Cosatu spokesperson Patrick
Craven said he would issue a state
ment to comment on the march a
later stage.
