Law Focus - Traditional practices vs Law

As the country wraps up Heritage Month we thought what better way to end the month than to discuss various traditional practices that could be infringing some of our human rights. Tonight, we look at when one has to apply the law when it to comes to tradition, you may discover that it may clash between certain cultural practices and constitutional principles. Some of these customs are among others initiation, virginity testing and polygamy of which they’re still religiously practiced in some parts across the country. We will be joined by Chairperson of the National House of Traditional Leaders, Nkosi Sipho Mahlangu and Andrew Aphane from Legal Aid who will share their insights on the topic.
