Incidences of sexual violation are unacceptably high in South Africa. Law Focus this week focusses on the re-opening of Sexual Offences Courts and their specialised role in providing justice to complainants of sexual violation.
The Department of Justice’s Advocate Praise Kambula joins us for this discussion.

We also unpack the constitutional challenge on s 18 of the Criminal Procedure Act as per the Frankel 8 case with Gender-Based Violence Attorney Bronwyn Pithey from the Women’s Legal Centre. This case seeks to lift the 20-year “expiry date” on prosecuting sexual offence

This edition of Law Focus is produced by Khutso Tsikane. Co-hosted by Nyiko Shikwambane and Basil Sherinda. Technical production by Kutlwano Serame.
