Julius Malema, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, has released an explosive statement regarding the appointment of Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.
The long wait for a new Chief Justice of South Africa is over! Raymond Zondo emerged victorious from a four-way competition after a series of grueling interviews. Judges Mbuyiseli Madlanga, Mandisa Maya, and Dunston Mlambo all considered Zondo for the short list.
Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo will be appointed as the next Chief Justice of South Africa by President Ramaphosa on April 1, 2022. Justice Mandisa Maya will assume the position of Deputy Chief Justice when the new Chief Justice takes office. The announcement was made late Thursday afternoon, and the White House issued a statement at the time. Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has been appointed as the next Chief Justice of the Republic of South Africa by President Cyril Ramaphosa, in accordance with Section 174(3) of the Constitution, effective from 1 April 2022," reads the statement.
However, Ramaphosa's decision has not been well received, particularly by EFF members and die-hard RET Zuma supporters. Zondo's appointment was the subject of an explosive statement from Julius Malema. The statement claims that Ramaphosa's "shortsighted, factional, and uninspired decision" led to the rejection of the appointment.
Ramaphosa and Zondo, according to Julius Malema, are each other's dream come true in terms of leading the state's armed forces to new heights. In Malema's opinion, Maya should have been chosen because of her impressive interview. Malema, on the other hand, claims that Ramaphosa is a weak-willed individual with low self-esteem. Malema claims that President Ramaphosa ignored Maya because he dislikes women.
Zondo's appointment was devastating for Mbuyiseni Ndlozi. Ndlozi took to Twitter within minutes of the announcement to express his displeasure. "In this country, it is difficult to be a black woman. It's impossible! No matter how much you work, how brilliant you are or how long you've been doing it, they'll always go for a man!" Ndlozi said this.
Carl Niehaus, for his part, couldn't hide his dismay. "Our judiciary has now been taken over by the government. Cry out for our beloved nation!" Niehaus made the statement.
Congratulations to Raymond Zondo, the new Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Africa. When it came to education and experience, you were the most qualified candidate. Greetings from South Africa. Please see to it that any and all wrongdoing, particularly corruption, is exposed and addressed.
The appointment of Honorable Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, however, is like the dawning of democracy in our beloved country for some of those who hear about it. Some say, "Well done, Your Excellency, this is an excellent decision." That's not quite clear.
