In an unprecedented move, President Cyril Ramaphosa called on the public to nominate candidates for the hallowed position. Last year, an independent panel vetted the 500 nominations and listed eight candidates.

This was submitted to the President who shortlisted four candidates who will now be interviewed. Constitutional Court Judge Mbuyiseli Madlanga is the first to be interviewed in Sandton on Tuesday morning.
