Julius Malema SPEAKS - Look at what he had to say about Raymond Zondo's new appointment

Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, has made a controversial statement about the new appointment of Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

Finally, South Africa has a new Supreme Court Chief Justice. Intense interviews were held between four highly qualified candidates, and Raymond Zondo emerged victorious. Mbuyiseli Madlanga, Mandisa Maya, and Dunston Mlambo were the three judges who shortlisted Zondo.

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 become Deputy Chief Justice when the new Chief Justice takes office. Late Thursday afternoon, the White House issued a statement announcing the news. Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has been named as the next Chief Justice of the Republic of South Africa with effect from April 1, 2022, in accordance with Section 174(3) of the Constitution, according to a statement.

However, Ramaphosa's decision has not been well received, particularly by EFF members and die-hard RET Zuma supporters. On Julius Malema's announcement of Zondo's appointment, he made an explosive statement. 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 as the state's top leaders. 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 man who is plagued by low self-esteem. According to the anti-feminist leader Malema, South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa ignored Maya because of his hatred of women.

Zondo's appointment was devastating for Mbuyiseni Ndlozi. Ndlozi took to Twitter within minutes of the announcement to express his disappointment. "In this country, it is difficult to be a black woman. Too much! Even if you are a hard worker, brilliant, and experienced in your field, you will still be passed over in favor of a man." This is what Ndlozi had to say.

Carl Niehaus, for his part, couldn't hide his dismay. "As a result, our judicial system has been fully seized. Let us all weep for our cherished nation!" Niehaus was quoted as saying.

Greetings to the new Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Africa. As a result, you had a higher level of education and work experience than the other candidates. South Africa sends its best wishes to you. All wrongdoing, especially in the area of corruption, should be exposed and dealt with, please.

Many see the appointment of Chief Justice Raymond Zondo as a sign of the dawn of democracy in our country. Some people tell you, "Your Excellency, you made a good and appropriate choice. That's not quite clear.
