Dan Mafora on the Defence of Judges and the Constitution
Dan Mafora is a senior researcher for the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (CASAC) and has previously worked for the Constitutional Court of South Africa.
Just as CASAC is gearing up for its challenge to the rationality of the latest Judicial Service Commission debacle, Mafora has penned a timely book – Capture in the Court.
According to Mafora we are in a dangerous moment. The South African judiciary, which has been the nation’s last line of defence against state capture and other abuses of power, is in trouble and under attack.
Mafora will address the Cape Town Press Club on defending judges and the Constitution. He will take questions.
