On Wednesday a pilot refused to take off at Lanseria airport. He is a hero because his passenger was Atul Gupta, in his own private jet. This pilot kept the Gupta brother from skipping the country, as the Hawks raided his home in Saxonwold with an arrest warrant for him.
This pilot should be decorated! He deserves the highest civilian award that there is in South Africa for citizen participation – the basic tenet of Democracy. Let me put it this way: “BUY THAT MAN A BELLS!”
