CAPE TOWN – The EFF has questioned Gauteng Choose President Dunstan Mlambo’s is health to run for the top of the Judicial Service Fee – citing allegations of political interference.

Friday noticed the top of a week-long interview course of for the JSC’s subsequent Chief Justice – with remaining deliberations going down on Saturday.

The interviews resulted in a shouting match between the EFF’s Julius Malema and Justice Minister Ronald Lamola.

The get together hinted at irregularities round how a fellow Chief Justice candidate – Raymond Zondo – appointed Mlambo as performing choose for the Constitutional Courtroom, reportedly after being contacted by Lamola.

EFF spokesperson Sinawo Thambo, stated they imagine this constitutes as undue political interference into the judiciary.

” He principally informed us that Minister Ronald Lamola positioned undue stress on him to nominate a specific candidate and this comes after Raymond Zondo was in a position to after all rebut the Ministers advances initially. Zondo appeared to disclose to us that these exchanges had been adopted up by a telephone name wherein the convincing continued. So why did the Minister need this specific candidate appointed.

Lamola was pressured to retract his assertion, calling Malema a liar.

The EFF is now planning to jot down the Public Prosecutor to query Lamola’s involvement in Mlambo’s appointment.

Thambo stated they imagine with out Mlambo’s appointment to the ConCourt, he could be working for the JSC with far much less credentials.

” The issue with the interplay that occurred right here right now is that performing Chief Justice principally threw him underneath the bus by saying that the interplay Minister Lamola was having with him when it comes to pursuing the appointment was out of the norm. We predict this was the best way to pave for Mlambo to be the Chief Justice finally by putting him within the Concourt for Mlambo to have the ability to have sure credentials in order that after we go to deliberations within the JSC Mlambo has credentials of getting sat within the Concourt in performing capability”.
