Judge Anton SteenkampSouth African Labour Court Judge Anton Steenkamp, 57, has died after being bitten by a black mamba – one of the most venomous snakes – while on holiday in Zambia.

South African newspaper columnist Max du Preez paid tribute to Judge Steenkamp, describing him as a “clever, kind, progressive man of great integrity”.

Close friend Charles Leonard, the arts editor at The Conversation Africa, said Steenkamp was his comrade from the 1980s when they were students. Leonard described Steenkamp as an “exceptional” person.

He said while Steenkamp was kind, generous, loyal and committed to bettering more than just society, he also had an exceptional brain and was one of the finest on the bench.

“He was a progressive person, truly committed to a non-racial society. I’m totally devastated. We used to chat almost every day on the phone,” he said.
