eet one of the youngest Judicial Officers, both as a magistrate and as a Judge.
In this first segment, Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga of the Constitutional Court of South Africa walks us through his journey to the Constitutional Court Bench, including some brushes with political activism.
This is the Justice who has written some of the seminal judgments of the Constitutional Court, including:
- the judgment that you need not be a member of a political party to stand for national election into public office: New Nation Movement NPC and Others v President of RSA – Electoral Act CCT110-19
- organs of state can set aside their own decisions on review but under the legality principle: SITA v Gijima Holdings 2018 (2) SA 23 (CC) – organ of state can only review own decision under legality
