The Press Freedom Commission (PFC) was officially formed in July 2011 and completed its work on 25 April 2012, when its Chairperson, former Chief Justice Pius Langa, released its findings. I was very privileged, over this short period, to serve on the PFC under the leadership of Judge Langa and alongside some very highly respected members of civil society, namely: Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, Santie Botha, Futhi Mtoba, Dr Phil Mtimkulu, Kobus van Rooyen SC, Derick Elbrecht and Professor Kwame Karikari. This tribute is my own recollection of the Commission's work and of the experience of working alongside Justice Langa as well as his impact on our efforts over the nine-month period.
