JSC interviews: Malema GRILLS Zondo about meeting Zuma
Earlier this year, it was reported that proceedings during Acting CJ Raymond Zondo’s interview for the CJposition became rather tense on Friday, 4 February 2022, especially during his interactions with Julius Malema.
Malema made reference to meetings Zondo had with then ANC president Jacob Zuma in 2008. This was in the wake of comments made by Malema, who at the time was a fierce Zuma ally and was President of the ANC Youth League.
The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) posed a series of questions from three other candidates vying for the post. Malema said he was concerned that Zondo might be too involved in politics and questioned whether he brought the judiciary into disrepute when he met with Zuma.
In response, Zondo told Julius Malema that he had reached out to Zuma as a private citizen who was concerned and not in his capacity as a jurist. Zondo says he was worried about possible violence resulting from his remarks. Read the full story here.
