Robinson Delivers Nelson Mandela Lecture

Former UNHCR delivers the 10th annual Nelson Mandela lecture

Former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson, says South Africa has work to overcome several problems, including the Protection of State Information Bill, poverty and inequality, and gender-based violence.

Delivering the 10th annual Nelson Mandela lecture in Cape Town, the former Irish president, Robinson stated that, "You have both the positive resource and the acute problem of a young population with high unemployment and a deficit of skills.

She also criticised the country over the Protection of State Information Bill, which she believes will deny the public the right to ‘basic truth, adding that this will result in lack of accountability and transparency within government.
