The way the ANC spokespeople are couching their words makes me think that they're not convinced that he is innocent of the charges he faces after the Appeal Court decision for the case against him to go ahead.
They say the judgement was a technical judgement (and here's the kicker) it doesn't indicate his "guilt or otherwise".
I find that language strange under the circumstances. Surely the ANC should say his "guilt or innocence", not "otherwise". They really need to get someone to coach them in language and the nuance thereof. By leaving out "innocence" they're classically Freudian slipping and their deepest fears are coming out – that they believe he is guilty.
