Public Protector Good Governance Week comes to an end

Public Protector Adv Thuli Madonsela on Saturday culminated this year’s Good Governance Week with a stop shop at Attlyn Shopping Centre in Attridgeville, Pretoria where she interacted with hundreds of weekend shoppers.

During the interface, the Public Protector called on the public to protect their democracy by reporting suspected incidents of bad governance such as corruption. She also urged them to report poor service delivery.

“We can only succeed in our efforts to entrench a culture of good governance within the affairs of the state if you work closely with us by reporting conduct and service failure,” she told shoppers during a walk about at the centre.

People expressed their appreciation to the Public Protector for the work that her office was doing, encouraging her to continue helping distressed members of the public whose lives have been affected negatively by poor service delivery.

The Week seeks to promote good governance in the conduct of state affairs while enhancing accessibility to the Public Protector services. Other activities that took place as part of the Week included a two-day conference, visits to schools, a public lecture and unannounced visits at government service points.
