Will be missed. Dep ConCourt Judge Dikgang Moseneke steps down from the Judiciary and ropes for snappy suits.

Nkabinde was appointed following deputy chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke’s retirement from the ConCourt last Friday.

The Presidency announced on Monday that Nkabinde  will act in her position until a permanent appointment is made.

“Deputy Chief Justice Moseneke rose from almost impossible circumstances as the youngest prisoner on Robben Island through to becoming deputy president of the Pan Africanist Congress, an astute businessman and pioneer of black economic empowerment to being one of the country’s finest jurists and esteemed Justice of our Constitutional Court.

We thank him for invaluable service to the judiciary and the country,” said President Zuma.

Nkabinde is one of few female judges who sits on the Constitutional Court.

She was acting judge of the Supreme Court Appeal in 20105.

During farewell dinner attended by former Head of State Thabo Mbeki, deputy Pres Kgalema Motlanthe, mother, family and other key members of the Judiciary, speaker after speaker spoke about Moseneke’s tenacity to tread were others failed; his dapper dressing and pursuing the objectivity and impartiality of the Constitution, among others.

Some believe he was overlooked by Pres Zuma for his outspokenness.

I was also privileged to have met and interviewed him, during the screening of a film on racism last year at the Constitutional Hill, Braamfontein.

What an amazing intellect yet humble with so much to offer to this country.
