President Jacob Zuma has accepted the resignation of Justice Mabel Jansen who has been in hot water for making racial remarks, the presidential spokesperson said on Monday.
Jansen resigned as a judge of the Gauteng High Court Division with immediate effect, Bogani Ngqulunga said.
â€œThe president has thanked Justice Jansen for her service and wished her well for her future endeavors,â€ Ngqulunga said in a statement.
Jansen had been on special leave following comments she made on social media in 2015 that gave rise to a complaint to the Judicial Services Commission (JSC).
Jansen tendered her resignation last week after the JSC investigated the racial comments she made two years ago.
