"They [the Judicial Service Commission] must act in accordance with that view and judge president Hlophe should not sit."That is really to protect the proceedings so that there is no possible or tainting of the legitimacy of those proceedings so that those who get appointed get to enjoy their position and that they know that those appointed proceedings are not possible subjected to challenge."Read more: eNCA »
Taxi violence: Golden Arrow bus driver struck by stray bullet in his ankle
A Golden Arrow bus driver was hit in the ankle by one of the bullets fired at a minibus taxi at the Borcherds Quarry drive this morning.
Hlophe will fight tooth & nail to fend off any attempt to exclude him from judge selection and, like those he supports in the ANC's RET faction, he will drag out his appeals as long as possible: It already took well over 10 years (!) to bring his original case to a conclusion! I am always wondering whether this Freedom Under Law thing is based on old apartheid mentality which suggests that black people are always suspicious. I have never seen them coming out strongly on some shenanigans that emanate from 'white' loyalist individuals or parties.
