How can a discredited Judiciary be trusted?

The Judiciary has been thrown into turmoil amid judicial interference allegations made by Justice Gaolapelwe Ketlogetswe against Chief Justice (CJ), Terence Rannowane and State President Minister, Kabo Morwaeng.

The spat left the public asking themselves questions over the integrity of the justice system.
