New plans by ANC to clip the courts' wings?

The ANC plans to turn its own renowned constitutional democracy around.

After the party and the government got several bloody noses in the courts, it has come up with a new plan to clip the court’s wings.

There had been talk of a radical transformation of the judiciary, although the details are currently still very vague.

In its policy discussion documents, there is mention that the ANC wants to reform the judiciary so, that certain provisions “can be solved in a political way.” The ANC believes that the courts govern the country and not the government.

Legal experts point out that such a step of the so-called rule of law will be the end, and dictatorship will help establish how the government can prescribe or bypass the courts.
