2011-11-23 00:00

KWAZULU-NATAL Premier Zweli Mkhize has congratulated Judge Chimanlal Narotam Patel following his appointment to serve as KwaZulu-Natal Judge President. The announcement was made by President Jacob Zuma in Cape Town yesterday.

Mkhize said Judge Patel has distinguished himself as a pioneer of justice. He is courageous, a hard worker, compassionate and loved by all because of his relaxed and engaging manner with colleagues and clients alike. These are the qualities that he will bring to his office, Mkhize said.

“All members of the Executive Council are looking forward to working with the new incumbent in order to ensure that the majority of people are able to exercise their constitutional rights, including accessing justice.”

Mkhize congratulated other judges who were appointed to the KwaZulu-Natal High Court, Durban. These include Jacqueline Irene Henriques, Zaba Philip Nkosi and Rashid Abdul Kader Vahed.
