Desiree Finca | First African woman to be admitted as an attorney in South Africa

Today Thuto talks to Ms Desiree Finca, a former domestic worker, from the Transkei, who became the first African woman to be admitted as an attorney.

She joined GM Pitje’s practice as a partner. Shortly thereafter, there was a relative flourish as a number of African practitioners were admitted within the old Transvaal during the 1960s through to mid-1970s.
