VUT establishes new law clinicThe outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for the county as well as for institutions of higher learning. But in spite of all this turmoil, the Vaal University of Technology (VUT) has succeeded in implementing an uplifting and exciting initiative - a law clinic situated at the VUT Southern Gauteng Science and Technology Park (VUT SGSTP) in Sebokeng. With the VUT SGSTP situated in the Sebokeng Area, to serve our indigent community members; the Project Coordinators (Mr Frans Fouche: Lecturer; Ms Lilian Ndimande: Lecturer and Mrs Anusha Nana: Lecturer) decided on the Sebokeng area because VUT already has the facilities and infrastructure available which they need. Furthermore, the Law Clinic is close to service centres like the Sebokeng Court, Hospital and SAPS. The Project Coordinators are grateful to the Director of the VUT SGSTP, Mr Heindrich Van Der Merwe who went out of his way to secure office space for the VUT Law Clinic at the VUT SGSTP. The clinic is registered and ready to offer limited services to the community from October 2020. 19 Aug 2020 Read more

Competing factions with their shifting coalitions and relationship to power and decision making, regularly use anonymous emails, social media and, on the face of it, agreeable journalists to serve their nefarious purposes. 7 Aug 2020 Read more
