Zuma files supplementary affidavits to have Zondo’s appointment declared unconstitutional

# Former president Jacob Zuma has filed his supplementary affidavits to have the April 2022 appointment of Judge Raymond Zondo as Chief Justice set aside. The JG Zuma Foundation claims Zondo’s appointment was irrational because president Cyril Ramaphosa ignored the advice of the Judicial Service Commission, whose preferred candidate for appointment was now Deputy Chief Justice Mandisa Maya. The foundation says this legal challenge will give Ramaphosa the opportunity to justify his conduct, failing which it must be declared unconstitutional and set aside.
