The Forum at Mosi-oa-Tunya: Judiciaries and the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Africa
Just like the inevitable thunder of the "smoke" of the Zambezi at Victoria Falls, where this year's Southern African Chief Justices Forum conference took place, so is the flood of the Fourth Industrial Revolution engulfing the African justice sector. The theme of the conference was The Judiciary and Technology in Africa. In my presentation to the Forum, I proposed that African judiciaries have an opportunity to engage with the technologies shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution now.
The Southern African Chief Justices Forum (SACJF) provides a formal platform, structure and framework through which the Chief Justices of Eastern and Southern Africa can collectively reflect on critical issues on justice delivery and adopt action plans to address those issues in a systematic and sustained way to strengthen justice delivery in the region.
