"Chief Justice Mogoeng Must Resign" Says Mandla Mandela

Former SA president Nelson Mandela's grandson together with several South Africans are calling for Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng to resign from the Constitutional Court of the country. This is after the Chief Justice made " concerning remarks" about Israel.

Mogoeng allegedly expressed his support for Israel during a webinar which was hosted by the Jerusalem Post.

According to reports, The human rights organisation Africa For Palestine also plans to lay a complaint with the Judicial Service Commission against Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.

The African National Congress has also expressed concern about the comments because government and the ANC see Israel as an apartheid state.

The party has also condemned Mogoeng for openly supporting Israel's actions.

It's calling on National Assembly Speaker, Thandi Modise, to hold high-level talks with the Chief Justice.

But Mogoeng is refusing to comment on the issue.

Here's what several are saying on Twitter about the Chief Justice's support for Israel:

@Ohyhini Christians have a big misconception of thinking their religion is always right and it runs the world, CJ Mogoeng Mogoeng should apologize and rescind those remarks. I don't care how true you think your God is you can't promote hate crimes! #mogoengmogoengmustfall
