Portrait – South African Public Protector Thuli Madonsela
Thulisile Madonesla is South Africa’s Public Protector. She is also a Human Rights Lawyer and Equality Expert. Madonesla is one of the 11 technical experts who helped the Constitutional Assembly draft the final constitution in 1994 and 1995.
At the time of the photograph Madonsela was investigating the “Nkandla Scandal”. A few weeks later she released her report in March 2014 where she found Zuma and his family had unduly benefited from the R246 million (Al most $21 million) spent on the upgrades. She recommended Zuma repay that part of the money not spent on security.
Zuma has since not paid back the money, an action that has caused strife across South African households.

What better way to portray the “champion of South African justice” than by putting her against a South Africa flag located in her offices in Pretoria.
