President Jacob Zuma says South Africa is plagued by slander, rumour-mongering and trials by media.

He delivered the eulogy at the special official funeral of KwaZulu-Natal Judge President Herbert Msimang in Pietermaritzburg.

Zuma appealed for the raising of awareness of key judicial concepts such as innocence until proven guilty and about the crucial role of the sub-judice rule.

The President lamented the fact that Msimang’s tenure as judge president had been extremely short, and that his death had untimely robbed the country of his wisdom.
