This is nothing less than racism and discrimination against ALL whites in South Africa and a further connection to B-BBEE legislations of the current President, Ramaphosa that created the Commission and the driver of black economic empowerment (communism). Wie en wat is Pabasa?
The Pan African Bar Association of South Africa is a national voluntary association of advocates, enrolled as such in accordance with the Legal Practice Act, 2014 (LPA).
PABASA is a representative of the advocates’ profession with its primary purpose to maintain professional standards amongst its members and liaise on behalf of its members with the statutory regulatory body for legal practitioners, the Legal Practice Council.
In carrying out this role, PABASA’s overarching purpose is to provide an environment in which Black advocates, in particular, can grow and thrive. PABASA’s membership is committed to independence, professionalism, excellence, the promotion of democracy and gender equality. In addition, we are committed to practicing our profession in a non-racist, non-sexist and open environment.
Central to PABASA’s value proposition is the dismantling of patriarchy and the achievement of gender equality within the advocates profession. To do so, we aim to build a professional environment that is welcoming to all our members, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation.
The PABASA constitution therefore provides for a gender balance across its membership, and the policies of the Association include measures to prohibit sexist and discriminatory conduct within the profession.
The School of Advocacy will train new entrants to the profession to become practitioners of the highest quality, unapologetically steeped in African excellence, rejecting all notions of law and constitutionalism that are designed to perpetuate the myth of African inferiority. The School will also offer continuing legal education, seminars and talks for established members of the profession.
Importantly, PABASA will in its own name and through the work of its members:
- seek to take up cases that ameliorate the plight of working-class and vulnerable people of all walks of life;
- seek to remedy the vestiges of apartheid and colonialism and to give effect to the principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
With 70 prospective members so far, Pabasa aims to ensure black and female advocates are briefed to argue cases involving commercial, tax and construction law.
Some of SA’s leading advocates have announced their intention to take on white male supremacy in the legal community, by forming a bar association with a majority of black and female members.
“We are unapologetically black and women orientated,” advocate Muzi Sikhakhane, one of the founding members of the Pan African Bar Association of SA (Pabasa) said at the voluntary association’s launch on 30 October 2018.
“We are creating an atmosphere where being black and being a woman are the norm. We are creating an atmosphere where black people and women do not need to explain themselves; do not need to seek white male validation to be recognised.”
Pabasa, which already has 70 prospective members, aims to ensure that black and female advocates are briefed to argue cases involving commercial, tax and construction law — areas that advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi argues have been dominated by white males.
Unapologetically black and women are how founding members of the Pan African Bar Association of SA – Pabasa – have described the new advocates association that was launched yesterday. Led by some of SA’s leading advocates, it’s stated intention is to take on white male supremacy in the legal fraternity. Pabasa, which already has 70 prospective members, aims to ensure that black and female advocates are briefed to argue cases involving commercial, tax and construction law – areas that it argues have been dominated by white males. We are joined now by one its founders Advocate Muzi Sikhakhane.
The Pan African Bar Association of South Africa (PABASA) elected members to their national executive committee (NEC) at their first Annual General Meeting in Johannesburg on 19 January. Legal Education Officer of PABASA, Tembeka Ngcukaitobi SC – in his introductory remarks – spoke about programmes that PABASA has provisionally decided on. He said the first item on PABASA’s list is the National School of Advocacy and pointed out that the National School of Advocacy will be responsible for strengthening and continuing legal education in South Africa (SA).
Mr Ngcukaitobi added the National Advocacy School will be run independently and have its own faculties of teachers, which will compromise of judges, legal practitioners and academics. He said there has been much interest from numerous parties in the National School of Advocacy and that a number of people have approached PABASA and volunteered their services. He mentioned that Deputy Judge President of the Gauteng Local Division in Johannesburg, Phineas Mojapelo, made an offer to PABASA that he will make his judges available to teach at the National School of Advocacy. Mr Ngcukaitobi added that, Deputy Judge President Mojapelo, said there is a gap between what legal practitioners do in practice and what the judges expect them to do.
Mr Ngcukaitobi pointed out that one of the ways to close the gap (as mentioned above) is in the faculty and training level. He added that the second item on the list is the Cross-Border Centre for Mediation and Arbitration. He said the centre will concentrate primarily on issues in SA, but will also have an African focus. He added that PABASA is looking into opening a Public Interest Law Centre to focus on the community and interests of historically disadvantaged people.

Elke CPA (Grondeise na 1994) val onder die wetgewing ” Act 28 of 1996: Communal Property Associations Act, 1996″ wat slegs vir sekere volke van toepassing is.

As swart en bruin dit doen is dit nie rassisties of diskriminerend nie, maar waag dat blankes (Afrikaners en Boere) dit doen, dan word dit apartheid genoem en “terugverlang na die tye voor 1994”. Waarom word daar steeds al meer en meer aparte gebiede na 1994 geskep as swart en bruin etniese volke? Daar bly steeds miljoene in die ou tuislandgebiede, wat deur CPA’s vervang is maar die indruk word geskep dat ons voor 1994 hul grondgebiede gesteel het. Dienooreenkomstig bestaan dit ook in die grondwet.
The British people created the reserves and crownlands, after they have annexed the land when they came to southern Africa. There were no country as South Africa in 1840, the Union started in 1910 after the British empire annexed the two INDEPENDENT BOER REPUBLICS.
Wat is apartheid regtig – dit was niks anders dan segregasie – aparte gebiede wat reeds bestaan het in die vorm van reservate sedert 1840’s. Dus kom reservate uit die Britse koloniale tydperk en nie uit die 1948 regering wat dit geskep het nie.
