List of people nominated to the Chief Justice position-Zuma supporters not happy with number 8

The American people have spoken, and the President has reacted. Ramaphosa had encouraged members of the public to participate in the process of selecting the next Chief Justice. This occurs soon before Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng bids a fond farewell to the ConCourt of Appeals. In response to the call for public engagement, the general public submitted 148 submissions, each of which contained the names of 25 people. The same individuals appeared in many submissions for a number of reasons. Only eight of the 25 names submitted satisfied the standards established by the President in his call for nominations.

The names of those who have been nominated to the office of Chief Justice have been confirmed by the White House. President Ramaphosa has appointed a panel to compile a shortlist of 3-5 names for him to consider. The panel's work will begin immediately. The President will then submit names for consideration by the Joint Selection Committee.

The following is a list of the names of those who have been nominated for the office of Chief Justice:

1. JP John Hlophe is a lawyer.

2. Mbuyiseli Madlanga, a Justice of the Peace

3. Justice Mandisa Maya is a female judge.

Dr. Wallace Amos Mgoqi is number four on the list.

Adv Busisiwe Mkhwebane is the fifth member of the group.

Judge President Dunstan Mlambo is number six on the list.

Adv. Alan Nelson, SC (No. 7)

DCJ Raymond Zondo is ranked number eight.

The public believes that there are around three candidates who have a realistic possibility of being appointed. Justices Maya, Madlanga, and Mlambo are the three individuals in question. Some, however, believe that Zondo should not be there since he committed treason by instigating disturbance that resulted in the deaths of 300 people and the loss of billions of rands! a Twitter user stated. "He is a hired soldier..damn mercenary!!" another added.

Zuma supporters have not forgiven Zondo for "what he did to former President Jacob Zuma," and they remain unforgiving. Zondo, on the other hand, was carrying out his responsibilities to safeguard the country's constitution. I believe that most of these names, such as Judge Hlope and Adv Mkhwebane, are ludicrous as they continue to be dogged by a large albatross of claims and misconducts. If they make it to the shortlist, it will serve as further evidence that South Africa is, in fact, a banana republic. What are your thoughts on the matter?
