Event Details

Justice Dikgang Moseneke ended his term as Deputy Chief Justice on South Africa’s highest court, the Constitutional Court, in May 2016. Justice Moseneke has led an extraordinary life. He was imprisoned on Robben Island at the age of 15 for seeking to bring about the end of the apartheid regime. When he was released from prison ten years later, he became a lawyer. Thereafter, he was a key negotiator in the constitutional transition and also served as Deputy Chairperson of the Independent Electoral Commission during the first democratic elections in 1994. Justice Moseneke has been Chancellor of the University of the Witwatersrand since 2006. He has recently published My own liberator: a memoir (2016: Pan Macmillan). Justice Moseneke will talk about the role of the university in post-colonial societies.
