JOHANNESBURG - Justice Edwin Cameron is stepping down from the Constitutional Court.

He's been a judge for 25 years.

Cameron worked as a human rights lawyer during apartheid and defended ANC members.

In 1999, he revealed that he was HIV positive and fought for HIV/AIDS and gay-rights activism.

In his first book, Witness to AIDS, he talks about his struggle with the illness.

Cameron was appointed to the Constitutional Court in 2008 by then acting president Kgalema Motlanthe and served in the role for 10 years and eight months.
