Quote of the week

Subsequent to the above an incident occurred at HLOPHE JP’s residence in Pinelands – not where SALIE-HLOPHE J resides – involving the third party. The incident occurred during recess. SALIE-HLOPHE J was at his residence. She called me, disclosed certain information – which I elect not to set out herein – and also told me that there was an electricity outage at her house. She asked me to go to her house to attend to her daughters for safety reasons. I went to her home. She later arrived at her house. HLOPHE JP’s bodyguard drove her vehicle and another driver followed in a second vehicle. SALIE-HLOPHE J was clearly distressed and in pain. She asked me to take her to hospital and explained to me in graphic detail what had transpired at HLOPHE JP’s house. Her hand, it appears, was injured during an altercation.

Discussion on appointment of new Public Protector

Appointment processes and our Chapter 9 Institutions

The Goedgedacht Forum and the Institute of Security Studies invite you to join Professor Pierre de Vos (Claude Leon Foundation Chair in Constitutional Governance, Dept. of Public Law UCT)  and David Lewis (Executive Director, Corruption Watch) in a discussion facilitated by Judith February (senior research associate, ISS).

Chapter 9 institutions are an important part of our politics and have a vital role to play in the deepening of democracy.  They constitute an integral part of the checks and balances needed to ensure that the different arms of government are kept in balance.  Recent events have shown just how important these institutions are.  In order that they are empowered to do their work, we need to continually look at not only the work that they do, but also that they are properly resourced and that their institutional structures are strengthened.  Please join us to add your voice to this important discussion.
