Judging from the vigorous Twitter debate that followed the Dr. Magaisa article, there are now two prominent and mutually exclusive opinions on section 96(2): does it apply to current Vice-Presidents? 1.8 On 6 March, 2021, I responded to a tweet by Professor Jonathan Moyo in which he was accepting the opinion by Dr. Magaisa and saying “ @ProfMadhuku should be professional and admit he was wrong”. My response, was as follows: “The opinion I gave to the media: that section 96(2) of the Constitution only applies to a VP who is a running mate (and thus not applicable to current VPs) is the better view of the law. With respect, I find the article by @Wamagaisa shallow and simplistic, unless meant for Twitter”. 1.9 I promised to post a detailed argument showing the scholarly basis of the opinion I hold. What follows below is the detailed argument. For the sake of completeness, I must say that the argument is extracted from a specialized article and is written for reading by both legally trained and not legally trained persons.
