The tragic death of Judge Anton Steenkamp of the Labour Court at the age of 57 has robbed the labour law community of an esteemed and valued member.  Anton sustained a fatal snake bite in Mpika, Zambia on 20 May 2019 while travelling through southern Africa with his wife, Catherine. Anton had served on the Labour Court bench since 2010 and was due to spend the third court term of 2019 as an Acting Judge in the Gauteng High Court.
