November 23 was International Day to End Impunity: Access to Information is a Critical Requirement

Khulumani joins colleagues in raising the alarm on the evidence that the disclosure of information in South Africa is at an all time low.

In the week that President Zuma assented to the Protection of Personal Information Act, the PAIA Civil Society Network (CSN) published its evidence of the increasing difficulties in accessing information from organs of the state.

The PAIA CSN Shadow Report for 2013 reveals that "openness and transparency by information holders both in the public and private sector have decreased from the already worryingly low levels of compliance recorded by the PAIA CSN in previous years."
