Johannesburg - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela concluded the national good governance week with a visit to Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg on Saturday.

She interacted with shoppers at the Diepsloot shopping centre on issues of ethical leadership and governance.

Madonsela urged communities to trust her office with their service delivery grievances and refrain from violent protests.

"You need to know what good governance and ethical governance are so as well as how these tie up with a responsive service delivery that will ensure that you lead a better life as promised in the constitution," she said.

At the end of her visit, several service delivery complaints were lodged.

Some members of the community complained that they were yet to get positive feedback on the applications they had made in the 1990s for RDP houses.

Others complained that the local healthcare clinic only operated eight hours a day.

The Public Protector undertook to look into the matters raised and would give priority to urgent items such as the water cuts.
