Judicial crisis

2008-06-03 00:00

In an unprecedented move the Constitutional Court, which epitomises and safeguards the rule of law in this country, has issued a statement to the effect that Cape Judge President John Hlophe has attempted to interfere in a case involving Jacob Zuma which is currently on appeal before the court.

It is clear from the Constitutional Court’s statement that none of its judges invited Hlophe’s intervention. It seems, therefore, that Hlophe may have been wanting to do his bit for the Zuma cause. If so, was this because of his own personal ambitions or because of pressure from Zuma’s supporters.
