Writing as a layman in matters of law and with deep respect to the office of the public protector, there are things that don't really make sense to me.

I hold no brief for politicians and very much believe that they must account for their wrongdoing irrespective of their stature or political affiliation, but my understanding of Pravin Gordhan's urgent application to the courts was for the suspension of the immediate enforcing of the remedial action because he was taking them on review.
