Chief Justice candidates: Mandisa Maya says South Africa has always been ready for a woman Chief Justice.

Mandisa Maya is the only woman candidate for the position.

“I am not good because I am a woman, I am just a good woman judge,” Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) president Mandisa Maya said of her nomination for the position of Chief Justice during her interview before the Judicial Services Commission on Wednesday.

She said if she were appointed she would be the “face of the judiciary”, with fresh perspectives and a wealth of experience to bring cohesion and unity among all the courts and those who preside over them.

It was not appropriate to ask if South Africa was ready for a woman Chief Justice because “it has always been ready”, she said. This drew a smattering of applause from some members of the commission.

Maya, who was first appointed as a judge when she was 36, has served on the SCA since 2006, taking on the leadership role in 2017. If appointed, she will become South Africa’s first woman chief justice, aged 58.

She took a practical approach in her interview, outlining what she had achieved at the SCA – boosting diversity and judgment turn-around times and debunking “patronising” talk that the SCA would collapse if she left.

She said any suggestion that the court would be destabilised implied that she led a “bunch of incompetents, which could not be further from the truth”.

On the issue that she was an “outsider” she said she had a good relationship with all the judges on the Constitutional Court, including two of her competitors for the top job, Judge Mbuyiseli Madlanga and Deputy Judge President Raymond Zondo.

She said her approach to the job would be pragmatic, underpinned by her key qualities of hard work, honesty and integrity.

Her leadership skills were proven, she said, and her ability on the bench was demonstrated by the fact that she had penned hundreds of judgments published in law reports, including one in written in both English and isiXhosa, a first in South Africa.

If appointed, her to-do list would include convening a meeting of all judges, who have not met under one roof since 2009, to share ideas, because the chief justice and heads of court “were not the bosses of anyone but the first among equals”.

Key Issues for the Judiciary
She said a key issue for discussion was the decline in public trust in the judiciary. “We need to get our act together and clean up,” she said.

The delay in the delivery of judgments she believes could be resolved through firm leadership and strict enforcement of case flow management.

She proposed shorter, more lucid judgments with less legalese.

She was in support of a constitutional amendment to change the requirement of a Constitutional Court quorum of a minimum of eight and a maximum of 13 judges, to avoid split decisions. But she also proposed that consideration be given to increasing the number of judges to 15, to allow for two courts to sit at the same time and increase output, and perhaps to collapse the SCA and Constitutional Court into one court “to remove a whole expensive layer and enhance access to justice”.

Maya said it was time that the Office of the Chief Justice (OCJ) became fully capacitated, and represented all judicial officers, including magistrates, and controlled its own budget.

“I would bring all our courts under one roof. We know that there are many serious challenges in the magistrates courts,” she said, citing the Palm Ridge magistrates court where there was no recording machine and no CCTV equipment for use by child rape victims, after an apparent bungle in the contract by the Department of Justice.

“This sector has asked to be linked to the judges under the OCJ so they can benefit and experience the judicial independence they are entitled to … They are judicial officers, not civil servants as they are now treated.”

The fact that financially the OCJ had its “hands tied behind its back” meant judges did not have any say at all how the budget was spent.

“We have expensive laptops which come with useless accessories which we never use. We are not consulted when they are procured … We are provided with leather-bound diaries. Who still uses those? And sacrifices are made in respect of critical support and tools of the trade, like court assessors, acting judges who help with backlogs, and the cancellation of subscriptions for law reports and law journals,” she said.

Sticking Points
The Black Lawyers Association in its comment on her possible appointment, criticised her for appointing too many white men as acting judges.

“I refuse to accept that I am anti-transformation,” she shot back in response to a question on this. She said it was to enable a “transfer of skills” so that judges who had started as practitioners without an opportunity to gain experience in niche law could learn and grow.

“I must point out that it is not a sin to appoint white judges, whether acting or permanent,” she said. She said she should be judged on who was appointed, and not who was acting.

Another sticking point during her interview was her relationship with the embattled Cape Judge President John Hlophe. She had recused herself from a JSC disciplinary hearing against him and from hearing cases involving him in the SCA.

She explained that he was like a “big brother” to her and they knew each other from when they were starting out in their careers. When she was appointed to the Cape bench, there had been a lot of criticism around her appointment and he had supported her, she said.

Because of the “delicate issue of perception of bias” she avoided cases involving him. “There is nothing sinister,” she said.

Gender Bias
On the issue of gender equality, Maya said the judiciary still did not have policies which accommodated women, including a sexual harassment policy – “as if we live in this bubble and don’t experience these problems”.

“As a result of this, when a few courageous victims have reported, the matters have not received the attention they deserved and they were treated as acts of misconduct, which take forever to finalise.”

Also, she said, there were no maternity leave provisions “Yes, judges get pregnant,” she said. “I was the first and they did not know what to do with me. Eventually, I was advised that the minister would give me four months leave allowed under the Basic Conditions of Employment Act.”

Maya said she was a firm believer in a modernised, on-line court and hoped that this would give more people in South Africa better access to justice.

During the afternoon, Maya was reduced to tears by praise of her personal achievements and what they meant to women by ANC MP Sylvia Lucas. She apologised for her emotional response. “Don’t worry, we are all human,” Lucas said.

Mandisa Maya South Africans Fans And Supporters React To Her Viral Interview 

"Some among us are disrespectful of Judge Mandisa Maya... first they said she is a woman... now they say she is the youngest 🙉🙈🙊 not sure why her supporters don't tell us about the judgements she wrote... and about her administration of the SCA 🤔 the sweetheart questions she was getting from Malema and Mpofu are also not giving her any glitter #sengishilo" - Sibusiso Buthelezi

"...on Chief Justice candidate interviews

These are four potential candidates in line to be the Chief Justice of South Africa leading the Constitutional Court/ Judiciary. All having positives and negatives attributes,who will it be to take over Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng?

I am leaning more towards Justice Mandisa Maya. I think she can make good efforts in transforming the Patriarchy nature of the Judiciary to be more modern, innovative, local yet global and future oriented environment for us as a nation to be flexible and adaptable. Although other judges have the transformation agenda in their vision, I think a woman speaking for other women is necessary, as opposed to men speaking for women.
 It's going be a tough decision." - Rolland Simpi Motaung

"Woman Crushing it Wednesday

Never in the history of interviews have I ever heard so many gender related questions.
The most unnecessary question- Is South Africa ready for a female Chief Justice?🙆
Yet, here we are led by Maqabane ka Adam, not once were we asked if we are ready 😂

Oh But This Queen answered with such grace, poise and serious reasoning,I marvelled🤩

So, WE HAVE BEEN READY for a female CJC💃

Since this office is close to the heart of GOD, HIM being a GOD of Justice ,I say: 
May the WILL of the Lord be done🙏
Kodwa Si Ready, angifuni ukungasho ☺️
#womancrushwednesday" - Gloria Pov

"Congratulations Judge Mandisa Maya for being exemplary and giving confidence to other woman .I know deep down in our hearts that you represented all of us but at the same time we are afraid of expressing our views about your dynamism during yesterday's interview cause there is an inner voice that says hey our comments and messages of appreciation might work against you .
I followed her interview and i appreciate that your nomination never dampened her fearlessness, fairness and standing for what she stands for what she believes in.

JSC recommends that President Ramaphosa appoint Mandisa Maya as Chief Justice

Just after 6pm on Saturday, 5 February 2022, as a marathon day of deliberations behind closed doors at the Judicial Services Commission, Julius Malema tweeted “It’s a girl”.

The prophetic statement was confirmed within 30 minutes when the commission announced that it recommends that President Cyril Ramaphosa appoint Supreme Court of Appeal Mandisa Maya as the next Chief Justice as the first woman ever to head the institution.

This week the commission interviewed four candidates for the position of Chief Justice.

Maya, Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga, Judge Dunstan Mlambo, judge president of the Gauteng division of the high court and — the fourth candidate who ended the week’s proceedings with a 12-hour grilling was acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Friday.

However, before cameras were switched off on Friday night, interview chair Xola Petse read out an email that was not intended to be made public. It was from a law professor at Rhodes University who expressed concerns that the interview process had been flawed and consideration should be given to starting again from scratch to avoid the possibility of legal challenges.

Issues of concern included soft questioning of Maya and the introduction of sexual harassment “rumours” in the case of Mlambo — allegations that were scratched from the record.

At 9am on Saturday proceedings resumed when members of the JSC sat behind closed doors from 9am to deliberate on which name, out of the four candidates, they should recommend to President Cyril Ramaphosa. Ultimately though, the final decision on who will be appointed the successor to Judge Mogoeng Mogoeng lies with Ramaphosa.

Deliberations went on until just after 6pm when it was made known that an announcement was to be made. Within 30 minutes almost 2000 users were logged into the live stream.

Finally the brief announcement happened when commission spokespersons Advocate Dali Mpofu and Doris Tshepe took the podium at the Capital Hotel in Sandton and announced that Judge Maya had received their recommendation.

Many People Ask Me What It Is Like To Be Justice Maya's Daughter - Wela Mlokoti

"You’d be surprised at how many people have asked me what it’s like to be Justice Maya’s daughter.

✨Young, old, from students to super senior members of the legal profession. Everyone wants to know what it feels like to have as your mother the first female Deputy President and then later the first female President of the Supreme Court of Appeal of South Africa, the third most powerful judge in the country and most senior woman in South African law. 

✨It’s AMAZING. She’s my mentor, my mother and my best friend. 

She’s one of those people who’s deeply loved by everyone she meets because even though she’s a VIP and the busiest person ever, she’s the most humble person I’ve ever known. She always takes the time to make everyone feel important and heard. 

✨On a professional level, of course she’s a superhero: she has 5 degrees which include 2 honorary doctorates for her contribution to the development of the law. A Fulbright scholar, she’s written HUNDREDS of reported judgments which are not only crisp and a pleasure to read, but has made law that changed the lives of South Africans for the better. She’s won awards for her work as an advocate; sat and chaired and founded various bodies and commissions ranging from the SA Law Reform Commission to the Judicial Services Commission to starting the 1st women jurists law journal of its kind in the world (according to Juta). 

She became a judge at age 34 and was the youngest person to ever become a judge at the time; she was the first judge to ever fall pregnant as a sitting judge at a time where maternity law for judges didn’t even exist; she was the first judge in SA to ever have dreadlocks. She handed down a life imprisonment sentence one day and gave birth to my youngest brother the very next day.

✨People ask if I feel pressure living in her shadow or to follow in her footsteps. Of course not: EVERYONE lives in her shadow. I just feel immense pride and tell everyone all the time that I have the best mum in the whole world! 

✨As surprisingly down-to-earth as she is unbelievably brilliant, I admire that she is not only a woman of excellence, but a woman of service. It’s such a blessing to know her. Mum❤️❤️"

"Today, I was admitted as an attorney of the High Court by the President of the Supreme Court of Appeal (my mum) and the Judge President of the Gauteng High Court.

'Issa celebration! 🎉 Throwback to the celebration lunch held in honor of my mom and I at our ancestral home. My mom had recently ascended to the presidency of the SCA and I had returned from Duke with my Masters degree in hand. It was such a beautiful day. Most surprising and humbling of all was that I didn’t expect my mom’s speakers to even know who I was, but it turned out that they knew all about me and even spoke of me in their speeches! 

None of us know what the future will bring. The best we can hope for is to work hard, stay humble and relish sweet moments like these.
