President Cyril Ramaphosa has officially removed former Western Cape Judge-president John Hlophe and retired Judge Nkola Motata from office.

Hlophe and Motata were found guilty of gross misconduct by the Judicial Service Commission.

Hlophe was found guilty of trying to sway two Constitutional Court justices in 2008 to rule in favour of then-president Jacob Zuma while Motata made the headlines 17 years ago when he was caught in a drunk driving incident.

The majority of political parties represented in Parliament have supported the removal of Hlophe and Motata and voted in favour of their impeachment.

Presidency spokesperson, Vincent Magwenya, says the removals align with the government’s adherence to constitutional provisions.
