SABC News Nkola P - JSC fines ‘drunk judge’ Motata over a million rand for 2009 drunk driving accident

The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has fined Judge Nkola Motata over R1 million for misconduct.

Motata was found guilty of drunk driving in 2009 after crashing his car against a wall in a Hurlingham residence in Sandton, north of Johannesburg in 2007.

The crash was followed by a racist rant that was recorded on a cellphone.

Following a protracted process where the Judicial Conduct Tribunal found Motata guilty of gross misconduct and recommending impeachment, the JSC has now made a final verdict of misconduct.
