Government of South Africa
Former Public Protector
South Africa
Advocate Thulisile (Thuli) Nomkhosi Madonsela, was appointed by the President as South Africa’s third Public Protector in October 2009 after being recommended by Parliament following a hundred percent vote in her favour by all parties represented in Parliament. A human rights and constitutional lawyer, equality expert and policy specialist with over two decades of post legal qualification experience, Advocate Madonsela holds a BA Law (UNISWA) and an LLB (Wits). One of the drafters of South Africa’s post apartheid constitution, Advocate Thuli Madonsela forfeited a Harvard scholarship to focus on her constitution drafting role as one of the Technical advisers that worked with National Assembly in drafting the current Constitution. She is co-architect of Justice Vision 2000, the National Action Plan on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act, Employment Equity Act, Local Government Transition Act and has contributed to several other laws enacted to transform the SA legal system since 1994, including the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act and the Repeal of the Black Administration Act. At the time of appointment as Public Protector, Adv Madonsela was the only full-time Commissioner in the South African Law Reform Commission where in addition to managing the Commission’s entire programme, her specific projects included a Statutory Law Revision Project whose focus was constitutional alignment and updating the law; and the Commission’s project on the Review of the interpretation Act. She is also a co-architect of several policies, including the policy framework that formed the basis of the Ministry for Women, Children and Persons with Disability.
