CRL Rights Commission wants exisitng language policies properly utilised

The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) is hosting hearings with the aim of affording all eleven South African languages the same rights and treatment.

Detailing some of the reports the commission has received from various stakeholders, CRL chairperson Professor David Mosomo says it is clear that the issue of languages has not been taken seriously.

Mosomo says upon investigation, departments have language policies, but many are unaware of this.

Are they making people aware of the fact that they can make choices with regard to the language they can use for example if they want to apply for a job?

We think that for the language to flourish and develop it must be used.

Some of them have these policies but when it comes to the implementation, that is where they are lagging behind.
