Chief Justice Raymond Zondo says in a bid for social justice and equality, the country needs a strong Judicial system.
He’s been delivering a keynote address at Griffiths and Victoria Mxenge’s memorial lecture at Nelson Mandela University in the Eastern Cape.
The Mxenges were civil rights lawyers who defended political activists during apartheid.
Both were brutally murdered in the 1980s by security police led by the security branch’s Dirk Coetzee.
Zondo says the judiciary needs to form part of the back bone of democracy in the country.
