South Africa: Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng Has Twitter Lit

Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng armed with sharp wit and an even sharper tongue, grilled Advocate Andrew Breitenbach, who is representing Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini and Sassa.

It was not long before both men were trending: "I'm sorry Mr Breitenbach I'm getting frustrated the more I listen to you" - Chief Justice Mogoeng. #SASSA #ConCourt .

#SASSA Mogoeng asks Breitenbach to explain why Dlamini shouldn't be made to account for her actions. "It's what she's there for!" he says. -- Mpho Raborife (@MsRaborife) March 15, 2017
