Courting Tradition

Production by Candyce Bruce, Julie Campbell & Enathi Mqokeli

The Traditional Courts Bill is highly contested legislation that is seen as being unconstitutional, undemocratic and may be negative for vulnerable rural women. Courting Tradition engages critically with this bill by presenting diverse voices on the tabled law as well as what should be done to challenge its retrogressive powers over rural society. A contrasting history of the traditional and magistrates courts is presented to outline the future challenges to ensure effective justice beyond party alliances.
