Mmegi Online :: LBS pushes for 'three-month basis' judges








The initiative, which was done through a proposal, is reportedly meant to appoint judges on a three-month basis. 

Currently the initiative seems to have been well received by the judicial system with reports that two judges have already been appointed. 

In an interview with the LSB executive secretary, Tebogo Moipolai, he confirmed that the initiative was proposed by them seeing that the judiciary has been struggling with case backlog for years. 

“Yes, LSB has made the proposal in various fora and in a formal proposal to the Administration of Justice (AoJ). The success of the current initiative will determine how long it will proceed. The AoJ will take that decision,” he

said 

He explained that though the initiative was new, they were confident that it would succeed. 

Moipolai said it was not the first time that acting judges have been appointed on short-term basis pointing out that it has previously helped address the issues of backlog. 

“It is also used in other countries such as South Africa. The rationale for the short-term nature is that it allows the practitioner to leave their practices for a short while with the view of returning to a sound practice,” he explained. 

Currently, Rahim Khan and Boipuso Tshweneyagae have been acting judges since November 1, 2018.
