A video clip showing Judge Zondo shed a tear as he tells a moving story about how he was helped by an Indian businessman to go through school has gone viral.
Judge Zondo is asked to tell the story by South Africa’s Chief Justice, Mogoeng Mogoeng, during an interview for a Constitutional Court post.
This is a story of how Judge Zondo as a young man approached the Indian businessman for a loan that would take care of his family while he was gone to study law for three years.
The agreement was for the Judge Zondo to pay the loan once he finish his studies. And after graduating the judge went back to the businessman to seek repayment terms. The businessman ordered him not to payback the loan but said: Do unto others as I’ve done to you.
