Madonsela's new role will allow her to continue doing what she does best

Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela will begin her new job as social justice chair in the law faculty at Stellenbosch University from 2018.

The Law Faculty at Stellenbosch University released a statement on Thursday confirming Madonsela's acceptance of the position.

Geo Quinot, Vice-Dean of Law at the faculty of Law at Stellenbosch University says the position will allow Madonsela to carry on doing what she has been best - clean administration and good public governance.

Quinot says Madonsela's role at the university won't be purely academic. It will contain applied work in conjunction with academics.

He says she will be given a space to become an activist and is expected to still handle court cases, which is what the law clinic is currently doing.
