Johannesburg - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela was belatedly presented with the Johannesburg Press Club's 2011 newsmaker of the year award on Thursday.

The presentation had been delayed for technical reasons.

Speaking at a breakfast function hosted by the Wits Business School, she thanked the press club and the hosts for recognising her contribution to good governance.

"We are humbled by the award because it means we are not just about making the news, but doing our jobs well. I am also humbled by the fact that the award was shared by one of the most important and influential people in this country - [archbishop emeritus] Desmond Tutu," Madonsela said.

Press club chairperson Michael de Kock said Madonsela and her team continued to display extraordinary courage, commitment, and consistency in fulfilling their duties to South Africa.

"She is particularly being lauded for her ongoing maintenance of cordial and positive working relationship with the media.

"The public protector and her office is known to respond immediately, accurately, and with integrity regarding issues and, in their respective fields of influence, they ensure that the values of democracy are upheld and that freedom of speech and access to information, at all times, are assured," said De Kock.
