CRL Commissioners are appointed every five years to serve the mandate of the commission. On 02 April 2014, 12 new commissioners of the CRL Commission were inaugurated at the Constitutional Court. This is subsequent to their CRL Commissioners 2014 appointment by President Jacob Zuma in terms of section 11(4) read with 13(1) of the CRL Rights Commission Act 19 of 2002 with effect from 01 March 2014, for a period of five years. The inauguration ceremony was presided over by Justice Edwin Cameron. Management is engaged in trying to introduce a change management based on performance-management principles.
The continued support of government in the rights and welfare of people in our communities is extra-ardinary. The rights of South Africans to speak their prefered language, practice their preffered religion have been hampered by segregation and resistence but the CRL Commission is bridging the gap.By rigorous publicising the Commission through a variety of media, the corporate image of the Commission is therefore dependent on the efficacy and resource allocation of the Secretariat and Corporate Governance Program.
