EFF pioneer and JSC chief Julius Malema asked makes a decision about Fayeeza Kathree-Setiloane and Judge Rammaka Mathopo, during their different meetings, for their musings on this. 

Malema was alluding especially to the Constitutional Court's postponement in administering on previous president Jacob Zuma's application for a rescission of the disdain of court request against him. 

Malema said the matter was welcomed on an earnest premise under the watchful eye of the court, and the postponement in the giving over of the judgment was unsatisfactory. 

Malema said there was an incredible feeling of vulnerability in the nation while hanging tight for the judgment. 

"The nation was in a real sense consuming," he said. 

He further scrutinized the meeting applicants on how Concourt judges could be considered responsible for such deferrals. 

"The Constitutional Court consumes a huge chunk of time to return to us with such a lot of vulnerability; how would we manage that? Is that improving the great picture of the legal executive, and, if not, who will be considered responsible?" he inquired.

She said she comprehended the disappointments in trusting that significant decisions will be given over quickly, and said the judges additionally expected to limit themselves and compose more limited decisions. 

Malema found out if the "standards and norms" that applied to High Court decisions were not relevant to the ConCourt.
