South Africa’s Zuma accepts resignation of judge over racial comments

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.

“The president has thanked Justice Jansen for her service and wished her well for her future endeavors,” 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.
