The state of the Judicary with Professor Hugh Corder.

In the 27 years of our democracy there has been
no shortage of drama and scandal in the executive
branch of government, culminating in the
depredations of state capture during the Zuma
administration. Numbers of ministers have turned
out to be corrupt or incompetent, sometimes both
simultaneously; the attempt at a government of
national unity post-1994 did not last very long;
factionalism within the ANC has interfered with
the executive’s task of running the country; and
the gap between the development of policies and
plans on the one hand, and their implementation
on the other, is as vast as ever.
