Zondo served as an acting judge on the Constitutional Court from in November last year until May 31. He is presently a judge of the North Gauteng High Court. Zondo will begin his term on September 1.

Zondo became the permanent judge president of the Labour Appeal Court in 2000, where he served a 10-year term. After his term in the Labour Appeal Court expired, he was appointed to the High Court in Pretoria.

Zondo holds a B Iuris degree from the University of Zululand, an LLB degree from the University of Natal, an LLM degree from the University of South Africa in Labour Law, an LLM degree with specialisation in Commercial Law from Unisa and an LLM degree in patent law with Unisa. – Sapa
