Motata has yet to pay for wall damage
Johannesburg - Judge Nkola Motata has still not paid damages to a businessman whose wall he crashed into in 2007, according to a report on Tuesday.
Richard Baird told The Times newspaper that the damage to the wall amounted to R10 000. His legal fees relating to the 2007 crash totalled R50 000.
Motata said during his drunken driving court case that he was willing to pay for the damage caused to the wall.
He has since made a court appeal to stop Justice Minister Jeff Radebe from appointing a judicial conduct tribunal to investigate him.
Motata, who was found guilty of drunken driving in 2009, wants the court to find that an investigation into his conduct relating to the accident unconstitutional and unlawful.
The Times newspaper reported that Motata's attorney Simeon Ngomane could not be reached for comment.
