Minister Trevor Manuel acknowledges the Community Law Centre

 “It is not a secret that much of our Bill of Rights was drafted at the Community Law Centre,” this were the words by Minister Trevor Manuel.


His presentation titled “An Overview of the National Development Plan in South Africa: Implications for Higher Education” was delivered at a lecture organised by the Rector and Vice Chancellor, Professor Brian O’Connell and the Staff Development Committee of the University of the Western Cape and it was attended by a large contingent of UWC staff members. He gave an overview on the section on education. 

This was  the first presentation focusing on the National Development Plan. The university intends on hosting a series of presentations on the National Development Plan.

In response to this the director of the Community Law centre, Professor Jaap de Visser says “this statement, coming from someone who has served as a Minister for the past 18 year and who played such a pivotal role in the negotiations to end apartheid, makes us truly proud of the role our institution played in shaping a democratic South Africa. We are yet again strengthened in our commitment to continue to live up to the high expectations that come with this accolade. Click here for more
