It has been a joyous moment blogging to you, Msholozi, my Commander in Chief and President of the Republic of South Africa. But now the Honourable Minster concerned with the department under which I serve has got a team of powerful lawyers waiting for me at the High Court for an interdict.
Her wish is my command; and I have accordingly instructed my own lawyers to seek an out-of-court settlement, namely that I will stop posting any further on this blog in exchange for no prosecutions as unnecessarily drummed up and around by Lieutenant General Matanzima.
If the general had asked me, I would have shown him a letter from previous General Nyanda who gave me the permission to interact with the mass media in a letter that stated: "... it is a matter between you, Phiri, and the media..."
I fought for South Africa's freedom not to relax after such attainment and by the same reasoning allow corrupt officials to abuse power just because they are powerful. Let me die if need be.
I wish you SANDF as an organization well. I urge you to maintain discipline: Phiri may have a bone to chew with Lieutenant General Matanzima, but that is not, absolutely not, an excuse for not giving our General Matanzima and the Minister support.
I salute you, My Commander In Chief!
