Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, political analyst at North-West University, Professor Andre Duvenage said he thinks Mokgoro is an excellent choice under the circumstances.

He was initially part of the transition of Bophuthatswana into the new South Africa. Then he became director general of the province for a long time and at the moment, he is the head of the school of governance in the province.

He has strong political as well as governance credentials and what is very important, he is to a certain extent impartial.
