Mogoeng has also called for a focus on implementation, saying that SA was packed full of incredible dreams, but continues to fall short when these plans need to be put into action.

The Chief Justice says that the nation is in deep trouble if allegations put forward at the Inquiry into State Capture turned out to be true.

According to The Citizen, Mogoeng called for integrity in those we allow to become leaders, commenting that:

“It matters who becomes a Cabinet minister, mayor, and a premier. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have a situation where all of the 257 municipalities only 18 have clean audits. Something is fundamentally wrong about the selection process."
