Thuli Madonsela Receives Germany's Highest Tribute to an Individual!

South Africa’s former Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, has been awarded the highest tribute Germany can pay to an individual.

German President, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, bestowed Germany’s Great Order of Merit (or Federal Cross of Merit) upon Adv Madonsela on Tuesday, 20 November 2018, during his State Visit to South Africa.

He said: “Thuli Madonsela, you teach us how resilient a democracy actually is if we determinedly defend its principles! In this, you are an example to all us democrats.”

The last official visit to South Africa by a German President was undertaken 20 years ago by then Federal President Roman Herzog. He was welcomed to South Africa by then President Nelson Mandela.
