oa De Jure - Prof Ignatius Philip "Papa" Maithufi : in memoriam
Papa Maithufi, in his own quiet, reserved way, made more than his share of history and broke down many racial barriers that remained after the fall of Apartheid. He commenced his career around 1982 while still a student at the former University of the North when students were appointed as temporary clerks during vacations at various magistrates' offices. After completing his LLB degree, he was appointed as an assistant magistrate in 1982 and in 1983 he was appointed as a legal advisor in the then Lebowa Government Services where his main duties were to research the law with a view to the drafting of legislation.
