The FW de Klerk Foundation congratulates Judge Raymond Zondo on his recent appointment to the position of Deputy Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court.
Judge Zondo has a distinguished legal career to date. From humble roots in KwaZulu-Natal, he served his articles with the late Victoria Mxenge, where his interest in human rights grew. A notable career highlight was his appointment as a member of the Goldstone Commission, which was established by then President FW de Klerk, to investigate political violence and intimidation between July 1991 and the first general election in 1994.
Judge Zondo has contributed richly to the field of labour law prior and during his term as the Judge President of the Labour Court and the Labour Appeal Court, until his appointment to the Constitutional Court.
We wish Deputy Chief Justice Zondo well in his new role as a custodian and steward of our constitutional democracy.
