Abstract
We may never learn what actually happened when Justice Hlophe visited the chambers of Acting Justice Jafta and Justice Nkabinde at the Constitutional Court in April 2008. These meetings took place after the Constitutional Court had heard the argument but before it had rendered judgment in Zuma and Thint, two appeals arising out of the long-running legal-political saga of the arms deal that has dominated South African politics since 1999 and which directly involved the criminal investigation of Jacob Zuma.
