The delegation comprises five Commissioners - Mrs Goffri Kouame Kra, Dr Marie-Paule Kodjo, Mr Nevry Roger, Mr Theophile Toudou and Dr Alain-Pascal Mennan.
The Commissioners are currently involved in hearings processes taking place in Cote d'Ivoire and have come to South Africa to explore issues related to procedural standards for conducting hearings of victims and / or perpetrators and to learn about the provision of assistance to victims and protection to witnesses, if it should be necessary.

Founded in 1963, Naledi High School was one of the schools in Soweto that played an important role in the events that unfolded in June 1976 and that lead to the fateful march of 16 June 1976 that contributed to changing the political landscape of South Africa forever.
