Cape Town — The parliamentary leader of the DA, Sandra Botha, has called for a meeting with the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) chairman Jody Kollapen to discuss the commission’s handling of the case against Cosatu secretary-general Zwelinzima Vavi.

Botha said she wants to discuss the SAHRC’s ability to fulfil its constitutional obligation “to promote respect for human rights and a culture of human rights” and to use its powers to call political leaders to account for inciting public violence.
