“From the recent retirements of justices, l can safely say that we've had hired guns who participated in the political space and progressive judges. Thank you progressive judges for defending justice but not politics. History will judge some ANC justices harshly.”
“I went through the Judgement of the wrongful incarceration of President Jacob Zuma and I must say that the judiciary is captured. Except for Justice Jafta. I wish him well in his retirement.”
“Justice Jafta was my favourite Justice. His slow speaking style (is he like that over coffee?), his questions, his legal philosophy. He was the best in the ConCourt.”
“When he took his clerks for lunch he was pretty much the same person.”
“Mathabo and now you...you ladies make me so so proud.”
“Jafta J was my favorite CC JUDGE….I am really saddened by his delay!”
“First year out of uni? What a rare privilege. Upwards and onwards for you.”
