The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews Judge Dennis Davis, Chairperson at the Davis Tax Committee.

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.
