Sipho Seepe said ( about Jacob Zuma ) : “There might be a good reason for him to want to do it because the case is political now. There have been many instances where our judges have made political statements, and even the Constitutional Court itself has behaved like a kangaroo court,” “When you have the simplest case of JZ (Jacob Zuma), which has a notion of a kangaroo court. You have a Constitutional Court entertaining a matter and pretending that JZ has not filed a case against (Deputy Chief Justice Raymond) Zondo’s refusal to recuse himself in the high court. The simplest thing that the Concourt should have done when Zondo approached it, is to first verify whether these rumours are true that your recusal has been requested. But the court chose to pretend that the process was not there” External link

The judge (Zondo) appears to be petty and his behaviour is that of someone who is eyeing a top position, which is the Chief Justice position in this case. This thing creates a conundrum that will expose that the Concourt didn’t apply its mind when giving the order (for Zuma to appear before the commission),” External link

Sipho Seepe said : “The first that can be said is the issue of accountability. Normally the impeachment proceedings are sitting presidents. Trump's impeachment trial is precedent setting. Second, the bar is set high for impeachment to succeed. It requires a two-thirds majority. Third, most Republicans stuck to their guns. To have voted in favour would result in their having to answer to their constituency, which remains intact. About 70 million Americans voted for Trump. If you are a career politician, you don't easily shrug off that number. Already Republicans that voted to impeach Trump are now facing a backlash. Fourth, the outcome means that Trump can run again if he so chooses. He can rely on the same grouping to support come next elections” External link
