ProBono.Org welcomes and supports shortlisting of Kaajal Ramjathan-Keogh for Public Protector

Article by Richard Chemaly.

Following the Students for Law and Social Justice’s nomination of the executive director of the Southern Africa Litigation Centre (SALC) for the position of public protector, Kaajal Ramjathan-Keogh is on the parliamentary shortlist for the job.

ProBono.Org has worked with Ramjathan-Keogh from her days at Lawyers for Human Rights up to and including her time at SALC. Ramjathan-Keogh also sits with members from ProBono.Org on the steering committee for the annual Public Interest Law Gathering. We heartily support Kaajal’s nomination, she being a nominee who is characterised by independence and integrity, both qualities required for the position of the public protector.
