Advocate Thuli Madonsela looks forward to embarking on a new journey after her seven-year term as the Public Protector recently came to an end.
In a no-holds-barred interview with 702/Cape Talk's Redi Tlhabi, she opened up about what has been a driving force behind her work in social justice.
I've always found myself involved in fighting for the underdog as early as I found myself equipped with knowledge about law and social justice.— Adv Thuli Madonsela, former Public Protector
Recalling how she slowly gained status as President Jacob Zuma's nemesis, she added that she remained dedicated to building an accountable, transparent and responsive public service that is anchored in integrity. She said her fall-outs have been over ethical leadership.
I have never claimed that I am the only person who understands what the Constitution means but I had always hoped that those who came into public power through the liberation movement shared the same values with me.— Adv Thuli Madonsela, former Public Protector
