Advocate Dali Mpofu loses again

Defeated advocate Dali Mpofu 


Mpofu is arguing on Magashule's behalf to get the ANC's suspension of him overturned. 


Advocate Dali Mpofu has had another loss, and it seems like it never stops raining. 

A few years ago, Mpofu was widely regarded as the top legal mind in the country; it was common knowledge that anyone with Mpofu on their side was guaranteed to prevail in court. A few years ago, he always made sure to win his cases. 


After 2019, however, he began losing nearly every high-profile case he had been working on. 


It has been claimed, including the EFF, that Cyril Ramaphosa is utilizing his legal allies to ensure that the ruling against Mpofu is politically motivated. Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), has claimed that Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, who is seen as an ally of President Cyril Ramaphosa, has used his position to influence judges in order to ensure that former president Thabo Mpofu would be found guilty.


Mpofu suffered a setback on Wednesday when the Constitutional Court denied his request to have his suspension from the ANC overturned. 



Magashule's lawsuit was thrown out by the highest court and sealed. 


The court concluded in a swift ruling that Magashule's appeal of his suspension stood no chance of being upheld. 


This effectively ends whatever hope Magashule had of returning to the ANC.
