Imminent Downfall Predicted for Stalingrad Litigation After Multiple Defeats

The week has dealt notorious blows to the Stalingrad litigation strategy, an evasion of accountability historically adopted by Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane and Jacob Zuma. Observers note that taxpayer-funded litigation pursued by these parties is increasingly proving fruitless.



Mkhwebane's impeachment along with Zuma's court losses underscore the fading efficacy of the Stalingrad method. Expert Karyn Maughan postulates that the demise of the tactics may be imminent, providing a salient warning to its prominent advocates.


This unfortunate outcome was glaringly evidenced from Monday's verdict by the full Bench of the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg. Jacob Zuma's attempt to challenge the invalidation of his private prosecution against state advocate Billy Downer and Maughan herself was summarily dismissed, dealing a significant blow to advocate Dali Mpofu's proceedings.
