Public Protector to commemorate 16 Days campaign in Nkangala

On Thursday, Public Protector Adv. Busisiwe Mkhwebane will address pertinent issues related to violence against women and children as part of her office’s commemoration of 16 Days of Activism against Women and Children Abuse in Nkangala, Mpumalanga.

Adv. Mkhwebane is visiting the area to further highlight the importance of the campaign and the role her office can play in matters wherein the state fails to adequately resolve citizen’s complaints.

She will be accompanied by a team of investigators to register any complaints service or conduct failure lodged by the locals. In 2012, the Public Protector helped a victim who was gang raped and suffered a further prejudice as her case was postponed over 43 times. The Public Protector directed compensation for the family and its dignity was restored in terms of Bill of Rights.

The event will take place as follows:

Venue: Community Hall, eNkangala
Date: Thursday, 30 November 2017
Time: 10:00

Members of the media are invited to attend the event and can confirm attendance with Mr Oupa Segalwe on 0722643273 or by email on
