Zuma & Chief Justice meeting set for today
The two will meet today in Pretoria to discuss the relationship between government and the courts.
That led to several attacks from politicians on judges with claims that they were trying to subvert democracy.
There was no hiding Mogoeng's frustration six weeks ago when he first said he was mandated by the heads of the country's courts to ask for today's meeting with Zuma.
"Criticism of that kind has the potential to delegitimise the courts. Courts serve a public purpose and should not be undermined," he said.
But tempers appear to have cooled since then.
African National Congress figures have since not launched anymore claims about judges.
The presidency said it will be Zuma who chairs this meeting.
It also said it should underscore the rule of law as a fundamental tenet of the country's Constitutional order.
