The Minister of Justice, Michael Masutha, has approved a request for Judge Mabel Jansen to be placed on special leave pending the finalisation of a complaint.
Masutha’s decision follows a request from Judge President, Dunstan Mlambo of the Gauteng Division of the High Court.
The Judicial Services Commission received a complaint against Jansen, following her Facebook comments that 'rape is part of black culture'.
Afternoon Drive's Xolani Gwala spoke to Masutha about his decision and leave conditions.
