In his submission, Director of Prosecutions ACC, Calvin Mantsebo Esq., stressed that Justice Mansaray was leaving behind a legacy that would be remembered for a long time – the cases he had successfully prosecuted and his good human relations. Mr. Mantsebo furthered that Mr. Mansaray’s move to the Judiciary would add immense value to the work of the Commission.
Responding, High Court Judge Hon. Justice Mansaray said it was a moment of thanksgiving since he has passion for justice. He assured all that the confidence reposed in him would not be misplaced. He solicited the support and prayers of all ACC staff that would make him strong to discharge his duties fairly and honestly.
