Ukusuka ngo-1994, uhulumeni waseRiphabhuliki yaseNingizimu Afrika ubelokhu ethatha amagxathu engunquko anomthelela ezinhlanganweni ezithile zikahulumeni, ngezindlela ezahlukahlukene. Ezobulungiswa ikakhulukazi beziyisihloko samaprojekthi ahlukehlukene enguquko njengoba esanda kuphakanyiswa nguMnyango wezobuLungiswa. Njengoba ukuguqulwa kohlelo lwezobulungiswa kudingwa nguMthethomsisekelo, umbuzo umi njengoba kulandela: Yiziphi izinyathelo okumele zithathwe ukuqinisekisa ukuthi inguquko ayibeki esimweni esingesihle ezinye izinhlangano zikahulumeni ezibaluleke ngokulinganayo, kanye namanye amagugu abalulekile anjengokwenzelwa obala kwezinto, ukuba nesibopho sokumela izinto kanye nokuzimela kwezezobulungiswa?

The judiciary in particular has been the subject of various transformative projects as recently proposed by the Department of Justice. Since transformation of the judicial system is required by the Constitution, the question is as follows: What steps should be taken to ensure that the transformation does not compromise other equally important institutions of government and other important values such as transparency, accountability and the independence of the judiciary? What should be done to refocus or change the legal culture, attitude, imagination and legal methods of the judiciary?
