Retired deputy chief justice Dikgang Moseneke presided over the Esidemeni hearings and in an act that can only be described as humbling, donated his arbitrtion fees to law schools whose students fight for the poor and vulnerable.
He was inspired by the legal counsel for the families of the vicitims of the Esidemeni tragedy who waived some of their fees.
Moseneke said: "[I] will donate all my arbitrators fees to law schools that will help nurture young women and men committed to defending the vulnerable against the abuse of the high and mighty."
He made this startling promise after reading out what the families of the victims would receive from the government for the tragic deaths.
Each family was awarded over R1-million in compensation.
Social media users were blown away by the Judges amazing gesture.
