"You better compared to what the Judge said to Adv Baloyi today Mshengu. He wanted to read a CPA Section into record and the judge said he must read it at home."
"I really enjoy court when they act up like that. I have been trashed so many times by presiding officers, “Wena, sir don’t wear those yellow shoes any more.” My shoes were tan in colour, man."
"In my candidate days was scolded cos I had one hand in my pocket... Was told not to disrespect the court. Of course the Mag had realised that he can't convict my client and he really wanted him."
High achieving law graduate wins his first court case, Mzansi is the best and sends him massive praise
In a contrasting story that involved a young lawyer, Briefly News reported that Giscard Kotelo is a budding young lawyer who just reached a significant milestone in his new career. In a Twitter post, he announced he won a case for the first time.
Giscard simply captioned his post:
"Won my first case"
He graduated cum laude and holds an LLB degree from Unisa, and specialises in data protection and privacy law.
In a day, the post had garnered plenty of attention from around Mzansi as people send Giscard praise and excited messages of congrats. However, one person was confused about what case he was referring to, resulting in an amusing comment.
