Public Protector at PMB city hall

2011-08-10 00:00

THE Public Protector, advocate Thuli Madonsela, will be at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall tomorrow as part of a two-month national campaign to solicit feedback from stakeholders and enhance relations between them and her office.

Spokesperson Kgalalelo Masibi said Madonsela will have a panel discussion with interest groups, including local and provincial government officials, traditional leaders and NGOs.

The office of the Public Protector was established in 1996 as a Chapter 9 institution, to address complaints of the public about the work of the state and government-related institutions.

Masibi said that on Friday Madonsela will be at Sobantu Hall where she will explain the mandate of her office and get feedback from the public.

“The Public Protector has been in office for the last 21 months and this campaign is meant to get feedback from the public on her work for this period as well as to ensure that the public understands how her office operates,” he added.

“People will be welcome to bring their state-related complaints at the Sobantu gathering as she will be accompanied by investigators.”

Both meetings start at 10 am.
