Heed CJ’s call, appoint the six left-out judges

What you need to know:

  • Debate about the appointment of the 40 judges has raged on for two years and created so much bad blood between the President and the Judiciary.

The President should heed this call. Failure to do so will deepen the conflict between the Executive and the Judiciary and expose the President.
