President Ramaphosa officially opens the Mpumalanga High Court
President Cyril Ramaphos has officially opened the Mpumalanga High Court.
For the past 25 years, Mpumalanga was the only province without a high court.
The Mpumalanga High Court is a four-story building that consists of 12 courtrooms but only five will be used with three allocated towards hearing civil cases and the other two will accommodate criminal cases.
Spokesperson for the Minister of Justice Crispin Phiri speaks to Clement Manyathela about the launch.
This is the last official high court in our administration in the last 25 years.Crispin Phiri, Spokesperson for the Minister of Justice
We can now say all nine provinces have a high court to service communities.Crispin Phiri, Spokesperson for the Minister of Justice
This is going to go a long way in transforming the profession and transforming the bench.Crispin Phiri, Spokesperson for the Minister of Justice
The #MpumalangaHighCourt was proclaimed on 1 May 2019 with Mbombela as the main seat and Middelburg as the local seat. These permanent seats signify a historic occurrence, as Mpumalanga is the last province to get its own provincial seat of the High Court. pic.twitter.com/VqQ1AjOi5Q— PresidencyZA (@PresidencyZA) November 8, 2019
