The AFSA Municipal division provides dispute resolution services to municipalities in South Africa. AFSA has entered into an agreement with the South African Local Government Association (SALGA), the voice of local municipalities in South Africa, to provide dispute resolution services to municipalities.
Local government is at the coalface of service delivery in South Africa and arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution, unlike litigation, offers disputants a mechanism which is fast, cost-effective and flexible. The AFSA Municipal division was established to meet the specific needs of municipalities and offers a panel of independent arbitrators with the skills and qualifications to deal with the speedy resolution of disputes ranging from labour and procurement disputes to service level disputes.
The AFSA Municipal division is chaired by Adv Lindi Nkosi-Thomas SC.
