Protector, churches to ‘co-operate’

2011-05-27 13:10

The Office of the Public Protector and the SA Council of Churches intend signing an agreement on possible areas of cooperation, it was announced today.

“We see the SACC (South African Council of Churches) as an important stakeholder with a vital role to play on outreach and helping people lodge complaints,” Public Protector Advocate Thuli Madonsela said in a statement.

Faith-based organisations could help her office’s efforts through moral persuasion and ensuring its work was supported, she said.

Madonsela met SACC general secretary Reverend Mauntji Pataki in Pretoria yesterday and discussed the roles of their offices and possible areas of cooperation.

She said they had agreed to sign a memorandum of understanding which would stipulate the framework for interaction between the two institutions.
