21 nominations for South Africa's new public protector

The Ad Hoc Committee formed to facilitate the appointment of a new public protector has received 21 nominations from the public. Nominees' names will be made available after 24 June. The position becomes vacant when the term of Thuli Madonsela, the incumbent, ends in October.


Due to the security considerations and the up-surge in the number of visa applications, the Mission would like to emphasize that it is on top of the situation and is working hard to lessen the waiting period for both applications and receipt of visas. The Mission would also like to implore the broader community in Taiwan to be patient.
