A parked bulldozer and piles of sand awaited Africa Check when we went to verify whether President Jacob Zuma has kept his promise of a high court for Mpumalanga
But the head of state also looks forward and offers promises and commitments.
During South Africa’s 2017 State of the Nation Address, South African President Jacob Zuma promised the completion of a new high court in the Mpumalanga province.
“The promotion of access to justice was given added meaning last year when the high court division in Limpopo was opened in November. The Mpumalanga high court will be completed during this financial year,” Zuma said to applause from his party benches.
“The coming into operation of these two high courts means that we have now realised the goal of a high court in every province of the country.”
