Public Protector South Africa re-opens for services

Members of the public who wish to lodge any complaints against any organs of state with the office may now do so at all PPSA branches. E-mail complaints are still being accepted via our central complaints email


Should members of the public need clarity on anything regarding the work of the institution, they can call our toll-free line 0800 11 20 40 or visit for more information.


The PPSA wishes the people of South Africa a prosperous 2023.
