Public Protector and SACC to sign cooperation MOU
Public Protector Adv Thuli Madonsela has agreed on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the South African Council of Churches’ (SACC) Rev Mauntji Pataki.
The MOU will stipulate, among other things, the framework for interaction between the two institutions.
This follows a meeting between the Public Protector and Rev Pataki in Pretoria on Thursday, where the two discussed the roles of their respective offices and possible areas of cooperation.
“We see the SACC as an important stakeholder with a vital role to play on outreach and helping people lodge complaints,” said the Public Protector.
She added that faith-based organisations could help her office’s efforts through moral suasion and ensuring that its work is supported.
