South Africa: So Long, Justice Cameron

Constitutional Court Justice Edwin Cameron delivered his final judgment yesterday and bowed out in an emotional, loving and warm goodbye in a special sitting led by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.

Photojournalist James Oatway joined Cameron in his chambers a few hours before his final sitting and captured the special moments he shared with his colleagues and friends. Cameron was hailed on Tuesday as a courageous South African who has continually stood up for the rights of the marginalised in society and upheld the Constitution with his integrity and intellect during his 25 years as a judge and more than 11 years in the Constitutional Court.
