ANC ‘monitoring statement by sitting justices’
Gwede Mantashe says members of the Constitutional Court should not air views on Nkandla judgment.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) says while it respects the Constitutional Court judgement on Nkandla, and has told its structures to implement the orders, it is perplexed by public lectures given by members of the court.
The ANC's Gwede Mantashe has criticised members of the highest court in the land, saying they should not be airing their opinions about the judgement.

He says the organisation is closely monitoring statements by sitting justices.
The ANC secretary-general says while democratic institutions must be protected, they should not become populist.
Mantashe says despite these curious developments, the party has instructed its members to accept the judgement and implement the remedial action.
