SA Ubuntu Networking Breakfast with Justice Albie Sachs

This networking breakfast, hosted by the South African Ubuntu Foundation and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, focuses on the topic 'Working with Madiba and Cyril ' with Justice Albie Sachs.

Details

Albie Sachs is an activist and a former judge on the Constitutional Court of South Africa. He began practising as an advocate at the Cape Bar at the age of 21, defending people charged under the racial statutes and security laws of apartheid. After being arrested and placed in solitary confinement for over five months, Sachs went into exile in England, where he completed a PhD from Sussex University. 

In 1988, he lost his right arm and his sight in one eye when a bomb was placed in his car in Maputo, Mozambique. After the bombing, he devoted himself to the preparations for a new democratic constitution for South Africa. 

When he returned home from exile, he served as a member of the Constitutional Committee and the National Executive of the African National Congress. 

He is the author of several books, including The Jail Diary of Albie Sachs, Soft Vengeance of a Freedom Fighter, The Strange Alchemy of Life and Law and We, the People: Insights of an activist judge. His latest book is Oliver Tambo’s Dream. 

Sachs has travelled to many countries sharing his experiences in order to help heal divided societies.
