Cabinet defends Kasrils
The Cabinet has leapt to the defence of Intelligence Minister Ronnie Kasrils, defending him against allegations that he could have been involved in illegal underhand activities in the run up to Jacob Zuma's rape trial. Its is reported that the cabinet meeting also rejected suggestions that information published recently about the suicide of Zuma's wife could have originated from the presidency. It says that it appears that the information published about the death of his wife came from the inquest dockets which are not in the possession of the presidency. Cabinet spokesperson, Joel Netshitenzhe says the airing of such private matters is irresponsible, repugnant and distasteful.
