South Africa has won the rights to locate about 70 percent of the "Square Kilometre Array" (SKA), a $2 billion project capable of detecting signs of extraterrestrial life in the far reaches of the universe. Zapiro's cartoon alludes to a new Police Commissioner being appointed on merit rather on political cronyism. Cynically Zapiro's cartoon does not see this happening in our lifetime just as unlikely to see life in outer space. Who will be South Africa's next police chief now that the board of inquiry has found the incumbent and suspended national commissioner Bheki Cele dishonest, negligent and not fit for office?
