One of the first big assignments the first democratic government had in 1994 was to compose a new Constitution. The Constitutional Court is the legal organ that credit the first Constitution, and today guards the nation’s submission to the Constitution.

The Constitutional Court is a beautiful building with both the location and the architecture bursting with symbolism. Across the pathway, on Constitutional Hill, is a former prison where a lot of the country’s freedom fighters have been imprisoned, including, Mahatma Ghandi, Robert Sobukwe and Nelson Mandela.

When Kim and I had half a day to spend in Johannesburg while awaiting connecting flights, we had visiting this historical – and still very relevant – venue on the top of our list. Here are some of the pics I took there.
