The CRL Rights Commission on Tuesday said it was worried that numerous administration offices didn’t have frameworks set up to assess whether the public was satisfied with the access to all official languages.
It said that while a few departments had language policies, they were lingering behind in guaranteeing indigenous languages were accorded the same rights and treatment.
The commission held hearings on Tuesday to evaluate what measures put in place to regulate and monitor the use of official languages.
The commission’s Professor David Mosomo said: “Because we think that for the language to flourish and develop, it must be used. If it’s not, it becomes a rank of history.”
