South Africa

The country boasts of some of the unquestionable judges who have been able to stand up to the governments of the day, to the extent of overturning some appointments made by governments, including that of the former president, Jacob Zuma. There has also been an improvement in court accessibility with the existence of pro bono and legal aid services for the poor. With unity in diversity in terms of appointments (increased blacks as compared to the whites in the Office of the Chief Justice), South Africa has one of the independent judicial systems in Africa, scoring 4.9 out of 7 to make it 36th on the global stage and fifth best in Africa.
