It has been reported that the Helen Suzman Foundation is threatening to go to court to force the JSC to hold new interviews for the chief justice post, calling the process of last week an 'abomination'.
There has been numerous reactions since the Judicial Service Commission conducted its interviews for the position of chief justice. And after much deliberations, the Judicial Service Commission recommended that Justice Mandisa Maya should be our next chief justice.
However, the president of the country has the prerogatives to appoint the chief justice. And that simply means, the country will have to wait a bit longer to hear if Justice Mandisa Maya will be the first South African female Chief Justice, since the dawn of democracy or what.
In the meanwhile, the prominent member of the African National Congress Tony Yengeni seems be outraged by what the Helen Suzman reportedly threatens to do. Tony Yengeni went to the extent of asking who is the Helen Suzman foundation which seeks to dismiss the proceedings of the Judicial Service Commission Interviews.
In his own words, Tony Yengeni reacted by stating the following:
" Who is Helen Suzman foundation to dismiss a JSC hearing as an abomination..these colonial relics are deplorable abominations..Sies"
