October 2017 – Interview synopsis
Attorney Selemeng Mokose’s interview did not go well. She lost points for the length of time several of her judgments had been reserved and her failure to furnish an auditor’s certificate for her attorneys practise almost a decade ago. The certificate was subsequently furnished, but she was fined R10 000, suspended for five years, by the Law Society of South Africa.
During an interview which lasted around 15 minutes, Mokose told the Judicial Service Commission that while she had not experienced racism on the Bench, she did while practising as an attorney.
