NDPP and Public Protector Meet
The National Director of Public Prosecutions, Adv Menzi Simelane and the Public Protector, Adv Thuli Madonsela, met on Tuesday 22 November 2011.
The purpose of the meeting, which represented their first official interaction, was to discuss co-operation on cases that the two institutions are dealing with.
It is important that state institutions that form an integral part of the criminal justice system and of oversight bodies charged with ensuring good governance, work together to ensure that the government’s commitment to service delivery is not compromised.
This is also line with the Good Governance Week initiative, where oversight bodies leverage each other’s strengths to enhance their effectiveness and efficiency in rooting out maladministration including abuse of power, state resources and corruption.
