The Cape judiciary deserves higher than to be led by a Judge President who continues to seek out himself mired in a case of gross misconduct. Therefore the method of impeachment towards Judge John Hlophe, following a discovering on this regard by the Judicial Service Commission, ought to proceed with none additional delay.
The Cape Forum welcomes the dismissal by a full bench of the Gauteng Division of the High Court of Hlophe’s software for a evaluate of the JSC’s discovering.
“Almost fifteen years have passed since Hlophe’s attempt to influence two colleagues in favour of former President Jacob Zuma. In the same way that Zuma has done over the years in respect of serious cases against him Hlophe, too, has done everything to delay action being taken against him. To see him judging over important cases undoubtedly impacts negatively on the credibility of the Cape judiciary,” says Heindrich Wyngaard, Executive Chairperson of the Cape Forum.
