Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng's Term Ends After 10 Years Serving the Nation

Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng's term has ended after 10 years of serving the nation. The chief justice was appointed to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of South Africa in 2009 and successively elevated to the position of Chief Justice of the Republic of South Africa on 8 September 2011. Since the start of democracy, he is the fourth chief justice in South Africa to take on this position.

President Cyril Ramaphosa wished the Chief Justice well in his retirement and said the nation pays tribute to Chief Justice Mogoeng for providing South African jurisprudence and the democratic order more broadly with judicial integrity and resilience, which has influenced positively on the lives of citizens also, has advanced accountability. 

The presidency recently announced the list of eight successful candidates nominated for consideration to become the country's next chief justice. South Africans were invited to submit any objections to the nominees by 15 October.

A nominations panel would consider these objections before submitting a shortlist of three to five names to Ramaphosa.
