ProBono.Org would like to extend a congratulatory message to one of our partner attorneys, Dakalo Singo of Werksmans. He was featured in the Mail & Guardian’s annual list of eminent South Africans under the age of 35.
His work in representing refugees against the Minister of Labour resulted in a landmark Constitutional Court judgement, which affirmed the labour rights of this marginalised community. That judgment has become the catalyst for ProBono.Org, with support from the HCI Foundation, to develop a campaign and monitoring mechanism to ensure its effective enforcement.
Congratulations Dakalo, continue the good work.
