Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has ramped up public pressure on President Cyril Ramaphosa and Parliament to act against Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu.

Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has ramped up public pressure on President Cyril Ramaphosa and Parliament to act against Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu for an opinion piece that she wrote in her personal capacity on the failure of post-democratic South Africa and the role of the judiciary.

Due to the separation of powers between the three arms of government – the executive, the legislature and the judiciary – Zondo said on Wednesday that the judiciary could not dictate what action should be taken against Sisulu for the “unfair attack and insults” against sitting judges, but they would be monitoring the situation closely.

Spineless cyril is dissapearing faster than a squirell running up a tree....madiba,thabo even jacob had balls to act & act decisively( albeit jacob for the wrong team)This oke though is totally useless with zero cohones & the REThyenas hve worked him out & abt to tear him apart He must resign She took the oath to protect and uphold the constitution( which of course I personally don’t like ).The least that she can do is to resign from its grip (Cabinet & parliament) and start punching those holes.

The guy is desperate to the core to please his handlers. The sooner the ANC is out of power the better. So he is calling the shots now? For what? For expressing her opinions and views? Are we still in a democratic South Africa with freedom of speech? Disagree with her if you do but don't suppress her right to express her views.

LindiweSisuluSA is going nowhere The purpose of money is to get it for free from the state, government, banks and business because money is just a paper. People must be given one million each person. There was people before money. We are more special and important than money. Money be given to us people freely.

I thought the President doesn't have powers to act against ministers. President Zondo 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣or prime minister There's nothing such, if fact Zondo has blown his chances of ever becoming a CJ, his biased and politically aligned

Sisulu consulting lawyers after stinging rebuke by acting chief justiceTourism minister Lindiwe Sisulu is consulting her lawyers after a stinging rebuke by acting chief justice Raymond Zondo for an article she wrote. The end goal of consulting is the courts right? 'Stinging' rebuke.... Don't make us laugh wena! Odds on Dali is part of the team - join the dots - the Gupta’s will be back soon & we can all relax & enjoy ourselves

Our beloved president will do nothing When it talks like RET,it's RET,when it walks like RET,it's RET,when it holds secret meetings like RET,it's RET🤣🤣🤣🤣 When have the country veered off from notion of the dictatorship of the proletariat? I think the SACP and the ANC are able to give us answers to that.

Zondo has been touched...and you peddle his feelings. Pressure from which public, the poor or the elite. Media and lies remember they said Julius Malema was investigated by the same politician judge and even today he was never called and you will trust them at your own risk I'm testifying cos it's how i saw a recommendation and so I give it a try. My small investment earned me huge profits in 5days of automatic trade, thanks to FXayanda for introducing and guiding me through IQ option Investment platform. If you want to start message her FXayanda

Ramped up pressure, how? The only thing I see pressured are those shirt buttons. UZuma kodwa washo! 🤞 People turned a blind eye! Hai bo! Where are you getting this from?

Sisulu consulting lawyers after stinging rebuke by acting chief justiceTourism minister Lindiwe Sisulu is consulting her lawyers after a stinging rebuke by acting chief justice Raymond Zondo for an article she wrote. My 6 year old started school on an empty stomach yesterday. She came back and there was till no food💔😭. I'm struggling to find employment and in my struggle my family is suffering. Please assist us with mealie meal🙏🏻. We'll eat it with sugar water🙇‍♂️ What did she do for the past 27 years as a minister in different portfolios to eliminate poverty especially for the majority I can't remember an instance where Minister LindiweSisuluSA has had problems with our Constitution. Instead, she has drawn a salary over the past 28 years, thanks to the same Constitution she now believes is a problem. One has to question the timing of growing a spine. Why now?

Ok, So Zuma was right🤔 Thumamina media group never sleeps Smh To make it all easy to your understanding,, it's based on investment whereby you're given the opportunity to make investment with a minimum amount and you get returns from a weekly trade carried out in the platform... ASK ME HOW Less you forgotten

To act in defence of a rotten Judge Zondo The more you try the more we see through you. There is no turning back for your paper and its credibility. For what vele? Nina niyanya 🤞🏽 He doesn't have those powers unless Zondo and Ramaphosa play for the same team. You know what I mean... Who is Zondo? Sis Lindiwe has a right to her views like any other citizen,now because she is holding the public office she must keep quite seeing the Judiciary being biased on every case especially. Zuma loses Avery case,Rama wins every case

NPA creates dedicated 'task force' in response to Zondo commission's reportThe National Prosecuting Authority has established a dedicated 'task force' to respond to the Zondo commission's report. NPA must first prosecute the real Senzo Meyiwa's killers who were in that house first. Or are they going to do as usually like Thuli Madonsela who rushed to release Zuma's report before CEIX report which came first.

Les we forget I respect Mr Zondo🙌🙌 DCJ has put SA in a precarious position, now he's in the corner That's how you apply for a job, Zondo knows that script very much well My 6 year old started school on an empty stomach yesterday. She came back and there was till no food💔😭. I'm struggling to find employment and in my struggle my family is suffering. Please assist us with mealie meal🙏🏻. We'll eat it with sugar water🙇‍♂️

I agree with minister our constitution has made the rich more richer and the poor more dem poor, what Zondo is trying to do must never regret his attitude by attacking Lindiwe, she speaks her mind as a politician,Zondo is going to challenge any political speech from the citizens To make it all easy to your understanding,, it's based on investment whereby you're given the opportunity to make investment with a minimum amount and you get returns from a weekly trade carried out in the platform... ASK ME HOW

Is this also a recommendation from bias state capture commission?🙄🙄🙄 Maybe parliament should act on Zondo by suspending him from DCJ .

Zondo says Sisulu's insult of black judges is unacceptableActing chief justice Raymond Zondo says it would be regrettable if tourism minister Lindiwe Sisulu was allowed to get away with her recent attacks against the judiciary, the constitution and the rule of law. The judiciary has been criticized many times by so many politicians, Zondo didn't call any press conference Why now ? Just because she's a woman or Zondo is involved in ANC National Conference leadership battles? But our Judges ARE colonial byproducts moes dan! If Zondo becomes Chief Justice this is another cadre deployment that has been unearthed by the DA.

This politician sitting in the bench had no role to play in silencing and determining what political role players should think and do. He's a politician that has been smoked out of the Judiciary cover. We can't have such a CJ. Judiciary is captured, thus why Lindiwe is right Not quite your propaganda won't work

ulunywa yini uZondo? Yes action must be taken against the minister of tourism. SA is waiting. Am not sure how CyrilRamaphosa can act against a Comrade of his who wrote a piece as MYANC Comrade of his...And he is expected to act in Government PresidencyZA I think noko you should give him more credit than that...If anything should be done then talk to the ANC NEC🤷

His nomination as chief justice must be withdrawn Zondo is a judicial puppet slave Cyril Ramaphosa is a politically bankrupt prepaid puppet slave Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu is a great revolutionary womandla* who needs to be protected from Stellenbosch hyenas who group themselves to attack an innocent who speak emancipation

Just a reminder 🤣🤣🤣

'Ms Sisulu has insulted us': Zondo takes a swipe at minister for insulting the judiciaryActing chief justice Raymond Zondo has seemingly called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to take action against tourism minister Lindiwe Sisulu for 'insulting the judiciary'. He is not God he can be insulted, we are going silenced by thus zondo If the shoe fits the should wear it And people still dont believe the judiciary is captured This is clear for all of us to see

Xolani_RSA Don't include public there we did not say anything to Cyril, i am fully behind Miss Sisulu..thina asikho lapho sila RAMAPHOSA MUST FALL ZONDO MUST FALL Thanks actually he has made the job of President Cyril Ramaphosa easy, fire her with immediate effect the nation is behind you Mr President.

Parliament has long lost its moral compass, it was found wanting by ConCourt & has endorsed malfeasance by electing that repugnant Maphisa. So accept that Parly would do nothing. As for Pres, he is a lame duck Pres utterly useless. Uyanya lona Rupert's payment has clicked Which public 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣ok🤡 U got it wrong, the public wants him to withdraw his nomination for CJ position and concentrate on political career

Kana your newspaper is a toilet paper I'm happy you know he was just exerting pressure for mpumlo to act. What's in it for him?

LISTEN | 'This is an insult,' says Zondo of Lindiwe Sisulu criticismActing chief justice Raymond Zondo addressed the media in response to an opinion piece attributed to tourism minister Lindiwe Sisulu on December 7 entitled: “Hi Mzansi, have we seen justice?” We are so disappointed by the minister statement Raymond is not the Constitution of RSA, he must just keep quite like everyone. his personal view does not represented South Africans and judiciary but his personal ambitions . Misguided Political Campagne for Presidency...🤣🤣🤣

My 6 year old started school on an empty stomach yesterday. She came back and there was till no food💔😭. I'm struggling to find employment and in my struggle my family is suffering. Please assist us with mealie meal🙏🏻. We'll eat it with sugar water🙇‍♂️ Zondo must tell us where is Phadima Fakula There is no greater joy than having financial stability and a life free of debts, that’s why I keep tweeting about williamchurch09 it has been a pleasure collaborating with you...there is no other way I can show my appreciation other than tweeting the good deed you have done.

Dont lie....he didn't 🤣🤣🤣🤣 -Sisulu has no constituency, -She is vomiting on his father's legacy, -A spoilt old brat with factional DNA and strong sense of entitlement. -Coalition politics is the future. What if Zondo doesn't become Chief Justice? No he didn't. He just opened himself to criticism for shutting down public opinion. Everyone has a right and your employer cant be called in every time you say something.

Who Cyril..? The Man is coward by nature, unless Stellenbosch instruct him to act something which I find it difficult to see him doing. SA is democratic state not dictatorship or one party state, even the Nazi's knew their limitation. But I never thought Zondo can stood so low. Zondo is an Educated fool

NEWS Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has ramped up public pressure on President Cyril Ramaphosa and Parliament to act against Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu for an opinion piece that she wrote in her personal capacity on the failure of post-democratic South Africa and the role of the judiciary. Due to the separation of powers between the three arms of government – the executive, the legislature and the judiciary – Zondo said on Wednesday that the judiciary could not dictate what action should be taken against Sisulu for the “unfair attack and insults” against sitting judges, but they would be monitoring the situation closely. READ:  Civil society lambasts Sisulu's attack on the Constitution and the judiciary as 'dangerous and regressive'   Zondo is among the leading candidates to become the new chief justice after the term of former Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng expired. The others shortlisted for the post are president of the Supreme Court of Appeals Mandisa Maya, Constitutional Court Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga and Gauteng Judge President Dunstan Mlambo. On Wednesday, Zondo said: We cannot tell other arms of the state – Parliament and the executive – what to do when one of them does what Sisulu has done. It is up to them to decide what to do. But, he said, “I want to say, I find this conduct on the part of a senior member of the ruling party, a senior member of Parliament, and a senior member of the executive completely unacceptable and it would be a pity if it was allowed. “It should not be acceptable in a constitutional democracy that a member of Parliament and a member of the executive should wake up one morning, without any facts, just write an article and insult all African judges…” It was important that we draw the line on conduct that is acceptable and conduct that is unacceptable, he said. READ:  NPA sets the ball rolling to investigate state capture allegations Sisulu – among the potential contenders to challenge Ramaphosa’s re-election as ANC president later this year – said on her Twitter handle that she had noted Zondo’s comments and would be consulting with her lawyers. The EFF said Zondo had descended into political terrain as he tried to impress Ramaphosa so he could be appointed as the new chief justice, while the DA said the president should fire Sisulu. RT
