ACCORD presents a funding proposal to the South African Military Ombud.

On 19 July 2018 ACCORD held a workshop with the Office of the Military towards developing a collaborative effort in preparation for the 10th International Conference of Ombuds Institutions for the Armed Forces (ICOAF), at ACCORD House in Durban, South Africa.

Following discussions at the 10ICOAF Preparatory Meeting in 19th April 2018 at the Offices of the Military Ombud in Centurion, it was decided that ACCORD would facilitate a one day workshop to assist in the preparations and discussions surrounding the Africa Day event, scheduled to take place on the 31st October 2018 as part of the 10ICOAF 2018 programme.

The workshop was used as a platform for ACCORD to present a funding proposal to the South African Military Ombud and to finalise the programmatic format and agenda for the day. The occasion was also used to formalise the collaborative relationship with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by the heads of both organisations; the Military Ombud – Lt Gen (Ret) Matanzima, and the Founder and Executive Director of ACCORD – Adv. Vasu Gounden.
