Human rights organisation Africa for Palestine lodges yet another complaint against Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng with the Judicial Service Commission.
Mogoeng caused a stir after video footage surfaced of him cautioning against harmful COVID-19 vaccines during a prayer.
Africa for Palestine’s Director Muhammed Desai, says these comments undermine medical science adding that although they support freedom of speech, the Chief Justice must adhere to the judicial code of conduct.
“I’m not saying that one cannot pray but the problem is what included in that prayer. The code of conduct makes it clear that judges including Justices of the Constitutional Court should not enter into political controversies. If you want to not have that obligation then don’t be a judge. We are bringing this complaint with a reason and that is that you are violating the JSC code of conduct. We can’t have people being anarchistic especially the chief justice of our country during a time when the entire world is searching for a solution to get us out of this pandemic the chief justice should have been more cautious.”
