Public Protector

NGO Calls for a Probe on SANParks

A non-governmental organisation (NGO) has asked the public protector to investigate South Africa National Parks (SANParks).

Aikona, an environmental NGO, has asked Thuli Madonsela's office to investigate the salaries of SANParks top management, their reasons for commercialising the Kruger National Park and alleged mismanagement at SANParks.

According to a report in the Beeld newspaper, says SANParks did not respond to its request for comment and that an advocate at the protector's office had already been assigned to the case.

Only Courts May Review Decisions — Madonsela

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela complains that attorneys advising organs of state against implementing her remedial action have become ‘superimposed as review panels’ of her decisions.

Speaking at a meeting with stakeholders, which included provincial government leaders, local government authorities and civil society in Polokwane, Madonsela, stated that her office is only subject to the constitution and the law.

She emphasised that state legal advisers have no authority to tell the government not to implement remedial action.
