Johannesburg – Public Protector Thuli Madonsela described in vivid detail the emotional roller coaster in her office during the reading of the Constitutional Court judgment by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng on Thursday.
“Everyone sat glued to the screen,” she said.
“A needle could have dropped. When something was said, I could see people in the office lifting up their fists as a sign of ‘Amandla’ (power). There was a moment when there were tears,” she said.
Madonsela was briefing the media following the ConCourt ruling that President Jacob Zuma had acted inconsistently with the constitution when he failed to comply with the public protector’s remedial action on the upgrades to his home in Nkandla.
It also found that Madonsela’s remedial action was binding.
