SAHRC facilitates the signing of an agreement between Mr Mahlangu and Mr French following complaints on the right to dignity and equality

19 September 2014

The South African Human Rights Commission (the Commission) received complaints about violations to the rights to dignity and equality from James French, Alice Choe, Mongezi Mahlangu and Mome Mahlangu. The Commission was requested to bear witness to the signing of an agreement between the parties resolving their complaints.

The parties directly and of their own accord, engaged with each other towards the amicable resolution of this matter, and provided the Commission with the terms of their agreement, with which the Commission expressed its satisfaction.

The Commission held a meeting with Mr Mahlangu and Mr French on Thursday, 18 September 2014 at 14h00 at its offices situated in Braamfontein. The Commission noted the responsibility taken for actions by the parties, and the integrity which parties demonstrated in achieving reconciliation. It recorded its commendation to the parties for their commitment to resolving this matter in a truly reconciliatory manner aimed at personal growth and a sincere commitment to the promotion of human rights. The Commission views their approach as a praiseworthy example of how individuals can work towards achieving society’s broader nation-building goals.”
