Traditional Courts Bill (2017)

Posted on

The Department of Justice tabled a new Traditional Courts Bill in Parliament on 30 January 2017.

The previous version of  the Traditional Courts Bill (B1-2012) lapsed, largely due to consistent opposition  to the Bill from people in rural areas since 2008. The opposition was such that the provinces were in fundamental disagreement about the TCB. As a result, it could not be passed.

See the Alliance for Rural Democracy’s media release on the ‘death’ of the TCB here.
