The Department of Traditional Affairs is poised to play a key strategic role – not only in assisting the
institution of traditional leadership to transform itself to be a central partner with Government in the
development of traditional communities, including the Khoi-San communities – but also in coordinating the
traditional affairs activities of this Department and those of other Government departments at National,
Provincial and Local Government levels, so as to ensure that the needs of traditional and Khoi-San
communities (of development, service delivery, governance, access to indigenous knowledge systems,
traditional courts and indigenous law, traditional healers and indigenous languages, etc) are sufficiently met.
