CHIEF JUSTICE STRESSES NEED FOR POLITICAL STABILITY IN SOUTH AFRICA

The Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa, Mogoeng Mogoeng, says South Africans need to rally together to defend the country’s fragile economy and to foster political stability in the country.

Delivering the Oliver Tambo Memorial Lecture at Newtown, Johannesburg, Thursday, he said the Judiciary played a central role in maintaining stability in South Africa and all South Africans must respect and obey its rulings.

The country’s top judge also slammed leaders who put self-interest before those of the people. He said no leader should be totally secure in his position.

You must be afraid of any leader who is prepared to do anything to become a leader. The political organization that I belong to — and I won’t mention it now — come election time, people were fighting for positions,” he commented.

“Let us be wary of any person in our midst who has fallen in love with position and power. You can be an effective leader without occupying any position.
