Nelson Mandela Foundation

Invitation to Participate: Traditional and Khoi-San Leadership Bill and The Traditional Courts Bill Workshop
Date: 30 July 2019
From: Nelson Mandela Foundation

As the contentious Traditional and Khoi-San Leadership Bill (TKLB) and The Traditional Courts Bill (TCB) move through the parliamentary process, there is a significant level of concern over the impact the Bills will have on democracy, justice and the land rights of the 18 million poorest South Africans who live in the former Bantustans.  

The Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Land and Accountability Research Centre (LARC) and the Alliance for Rural Democracy (ARD) and with the support of the Hanns Seidel Foundation, will host a dialogue on the bills with rural community members, academics, civil society and struggle veterans.

Listening to the voices of those affected by the Bills and understanding the deeper implications of the Bills is integral. Therefore, in order to create a purposeful and meaningful way forward

This platform will allow for the press to meaningfully engage with the Bills and its pertinent stakeholders. We see this as part of our ongoing engagement with the media over land. As you had previously attended the workshop on reporting on land, we hope that you, and other members of the press, will be able to attend the event.

Voices include: Constance Mogale (ARD National Coordinator) and Nonhle Mbuthuma (Spokesperson of Amadiba Crisis Committee), Cheryl Carolus, Mavuso Msimang and Aninka Claassens.

Time: 30th of July 2019, 9:00-13:00.
Venue: Nelson Mandela Foundation (107 Central Street, Houghton Estate, Johannesburg)

Please could you RSVP to Lee Davies by the 25th of July.
