Ms Khumalo brings vast experience in the human rights field. The former Chief Operations Officer at the SAHRC was responsible for the running of the operational programs of the Commission, including the Legal Services, Research, Promotion of Access to Information as well as the Human Rights and Advocacy.
Before her appointment as the COO Ms Khumalo was the Provincial Manager for the Commission’s Free State Office.

The Commission and staff would like to congratulate Ms Khumalo who has already shown her leadership skills as the COO, and doubt not that she will continue with the good work she is doing at the Human Rights Commission.
