2011-06-03 13:09

Sandile Ngcobo would continue to serve as South Africa’s chief judge for the next five years, President Jacob Zuma has announced.

Ngcobo, who assumed his current office in October 2009, had made an “indelible mark” on the position over the past 18 months, Zuma said in a statement issued to journalists at Tuynhuys following his meeting with the leaders of opposition political parties.

“Acting in terms of ... the Judges Remuneration and Conditions of Employment Act ...

I requested Chief Justice Ngcobo to continue to perform active service as the Chief Justice of the Republic of South Africa, with effect from August 16 [this year] until August 15 2016.

“He has agreed to my request.”

Zuma said he had briefed the leaders of the opposition parties present at the meeting where he made his decision.
