Speaking at the Advocates for Transformation Dinner held on 6 July 2013, Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng complained of what he called the apparent resistance to change by a good number of fellow South Africans who, to him, benefitted from opportunities reserved exclusively for them by the apartheid system.

The Chief Justice well knows that it is foundational to our new constitutional order that the values of non-racism and non-sexism be upheld. The Chief Justice has sworn an oath of office that he will uphold the Constitution. To launch a racist and sexist attack against white male lawyers, which is what the Chief Justice has done, does not serve to achieve or advance the type of transformed nation that is envisaged in the Constitution.
