Public Protector Candidates Urged to Quit Politics

Corruption Watch says the Public Protector candidates’ political affiliations will create a lack of confidence from the public.

The organisation states that as a parliamentary ad-hoc committee begins shortlisting 62 candidates to fill the role of public protector when Thuli Madonsela’s term ends in October, the contenders with political affiliations must resign from their respective parties.

Corruption Watch’s Bua Mzansi Campaign coordinator, Kavisha Pillay, says their campaign aims to oversee transparency by the ad-hoc committee formed to deal with the appointment.

Amnesty Slams Angola Over Rights

Amnesty International says that Angolan President, José Eduardo dos Santos’s tightening stranglehold on freedom of expression in Angola and his government’s decades of fear and repression will cast an indelible stain on the 40th anniversary of the country’s independence.

The organisation states that as dignitaries and foreign leaders gather in the capital Luanda to mark four decades of independence, at least 16 activists continue to languish in Angolan jails.

Institutional Independence: Why it is Important and What We Are Doing

Since its inception in 1993, the HSF has promoted the liberal democratic values that informed, guided and defined Helen Suzman's work. The Helen Suzman Foundation (‘HSF’) has a particular interest in the values enshrined in the Constitution. Central to the freedoms conferred by the Constitution are checks and balances designed to guard against abuse of power. At the largest scale, these checks and balances are ensured by a division of functions between the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary.
