In other words, he is fit for duty. Gone are the days when judges had to be of the highest moral and ethical standing. Nowadays as long as you sport a black skin, can walk upright and can pucker up to the appropriate ANC fat arse to kiss, one is considered suitable material. A High Court judge nogal. And no, don't expect judgito el dronko here to lose his job either, that's for the little people.
How drunk was that judgey in the window, woof, woof?
As the wheel turns...Drunk (hic) Judge
JOHANNESBURG (Sapa) - Pretoria High Court Judge Nkola Motata was found guilty of drunken driving by the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
"I find that you were under the influence of an intoxicating liquor at the time of a crash into a wall," said Magistrate Desmond Nair.
He said audio recordings taken at the scene of the accident brought to mind the saying "if a picture told a thousand words, the audio recordings told ten thousand words".
Nair said Motata was acquitted of the other charges - of obstructing the ends of justice and an alternative charge for resisting arrest.
He said he could not find that Motata had an "intention" to hinder justice but rather he was more "difficult and quarrelsome" because he was drunk.
In terms of alternative charge of resisting arrest, Nair said he could not find a criminal intent to do this and also that police were inconsistent about who actually read him his rights.
