Media Alert: SAHRC Mpumalanga Provincial Office will conduct a Roadshow/Legal Clinic on the Rights of Undocumented Children

Attention: Editors and Reporters

27 August 2019

Over the years, the SAHRC Mpumalanga Provincial Office has received numerous complaints regarding undocumented learners, who have been denied access to schools due to lack of documentation. The Commission considers this continuing conduct from some schools as a gross violation of the rights of children enshrined in the Constitution.

The event is a follow-up of the workshop with community structures on the subject which was held on 26 July 2019. The aim of the roadshow/legal clinic is to equip community members with information about the culture and respect of the rights of migrant, stateless and South African undocumented children. It is further meant to register complaints and or enquiries relating to violations of the rights of undocumented children.

The roadshow/legal clinic is scheduled to take place as follows:

Date:            28 August 2019

Venue:         Lugendlane Tribal Authority Office, Emangweni Trust (Tonga)

Time:           10:00
