STATEMENT: TRIBUTE - FORMER CHIEF JUSTICE PIUS LANGA

Pius Langa I have learned with great sadness of the death of former Chief Justice Pius Langa and would like to convey my sincere condolences to his family and friends. As one of the first Judges appointed to our Constitutional Court after 1994 -‐ and later in the key role of Chief Justice from 2005 until his retirement in 2009 -­ Justice Langa played a crucial role in laying the foundations for our young constitutional democracy and continued to promote the integrity and independence of the judiciary as a cornerstone of our democracy.

During his tenure at the Constitutional Court but also after his retirement, he worked tirelessly to help build -­ in a balanced and fair manner -­ a non-­racist, non-­sexist and just society founded on the values of human dignity, equality, supremacy of the Constitution and the Rule of Law. Justice Langa's legacy as constitutionalist and jurist will continue to serve as a sterling example of independence of mind for generations to come.
