Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng retires: An uneven performance - Judge Davis
Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng's decade-long tenure has come to an end.
“Chief Justice Mogoeng presided over our judiciary during a decade which was challenging in many ways, but during which our judiciary held firm and enabled the renewal of our society," said President Cyril Ramaphosa on Monday.
Then-president Jacob Zuma appointed Mogoeng in September 2011 amid criticism and concerns over some of his previous judgments.
It is now up to Ramaphosa to choose his successor from a list of eight names submitted after the public was invited to make suggestions.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Judge Dennis Davis, Chairperson at the Davis Tax Committee (scroll up to listen).
