The Judicial service commission has made calls to the public to make written submissions on the suitability of the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) President Justice Mandisa Maya for appointment as the Deputy Chief Justice.

Back in February, the JSC recommended Maya for the position of Chief Justice, a move that President Cyril Ramaphosa went against and instead appointed Justice Raymond Zondo.

The 58-year-old is regarded as “a woman of firsts” because she was one of the first women judges on the Eastern Cape High Court, the first black woman to be appointed to the SCA, the first woman deputy president of the court, and later, the first woman president of the SCA.

She has also received three honorary doctorates and was recently appointed as the Chancellor of the University of Mpumalanga.
