“It (CCT trial) is a distraction. I want to clear my name as soon as possible so that we can move forward. It is a huge distraction. As an institution we must look at how to strengthen the judiciary. The fight against corruption must be transparent. It might slow us a little bit down, but I am confident we will make progress” he said
