Rarely has one so humble, so softly spoken, imprinted her persona so powerfully on a nation as Advocate Thulisile Madonsela has on South Africa. Appointed in October 2009 to what was then the low profile position of Public Protector, her seven-year stewardship gave South Africa a study in courage and resilience in the face of extreme adversity.

At times it seemed Madonsela stood alone against rampant plunder of the State’s resources, her enemies inventing all manner of falsehoods and public rebuke in efforts to discredit her. One day there will be statues of Thuli as a reminder to her nation that its future greatness was built on the contribution of those who chose the Constitution above their own comfort. And, that one properly motivated soul truly can make a huge difference. – Alec Hogg
