Judges see themselves as "descendants of God" who came down from heaven to the bench thinking whatever they say is divine, says the Young Communist League's national secretary.
Buti Manamela was speaking at a press briefing ahead of the launch of the Progressive Youth Alliance at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology's campus in Bellville on Friday.
The alliance is made up of the South African Students' Congress, the Young Communist League and the ANC Youth League.
The three organisations have joined forces to contest SRC elections at tertiary institutions across the country.
Manamela said one could not have a situation where the judiciary felt it was above reproach. It was also a problem when one judge was investigated for his utterances, but not others.
