Civic group not happy with Julius Malema & Dali Mpofu taking part in Chief Justice interviews

Civic organization Freedom Under Law says it’s concerned about EFF President Julius Malema and Advocate Dali Mpofu taking part in the search for a new Chief Justice.

The organization says Malema and Mpofu, who are members of the Judicial Services Commission, aren’t suitable to partake in such an important task.

It cited a judgment by the Joint Committee on Ethics and Members’ Interests which found Malema to have breached Parliament’s Code of Ethical Conduct during interviews for judges by asking a question deemed inappropriate, as well as investigations into Mpofu’s conduct when he told a colleague and her client to shut up during the Zondo Commission.

Because of this, Freedom Under Law says the two should step aside.
