Public Protector invites stakeholders in Limpopo to an unmediated dialogue

Public Protector Adv. Busisiwe Mkhwebane has urged the communities of Thohoyandou and other stakeholders in Limpopo to use the opportunity her office is providing to engage her directly on service and conduct failure complaints, and other concerns.

Adv. Mkhwebane will early next week visit the province as part of her office’s four-month, nationwide stakeholder meetings, through which she will outline her vision and solicit stakeholder’s views on the plan.

Her interaction with communities in Thohoyandou will be followed by an address on Tuesday to provincial parliamentarians ahead of a debate on the State of the Province address in Lebowakgomo, where she will introduce herself in addition to sharing her vision.
