What is the Asikaqedi Campaign?

In 2014, South Africans celebrated twenty years since the end of the Apartheid system   - a system known as “a crime against humanity” because it divided and oppressed people because of the colour of their skin. Many lives were sacrificed and many communities were damaged by this system, and in the long, hard struggle to build a united, democratic, non-racist and non-sexist South Africa.

Khulumani National Organiser, Ms Nomarussia Bonase's visit to Germany 14 Oct - 3 Nov 2014

Khulumani National Organiser, Ms Nomarussia Bonase has been visiting friends and supporters of Khulumani Support Group in Germany since 14 October 2014. The visit commenced with a 2-day conference in Berlin about The State of Social Justice in South Africa Twenty Years into Democracy. There were challenges at the start of the visit when there was a national train strike that had a huge impact because most people in Germany rely on rail transport to get almost everywhere.

Khulumani Welcomes The Announcement That The Regulations To Provide Educational Benefits For Victims & Survivors Of Apartheid Atrocities Have Been Signed By The President

The Asikaqedi Campaign welcomes the news of the signing into law of the regulations to provide educational benefits for those who were unable to complete their education as a result of apartheid human rights violations, and sacrifices made in the struggle for justice and democracy. This information was made public by Dr Khotso de Wee, Chief Operations Officer of the Department of Justice on the 29 October 2014 John Perlman Show on Kaya FM that discussed the ASIKAQEDI Campaign. The long delays in introducing educational benefits for victims and survivors has been a key demand of our campaign. We congratulate Government on taking this first step towards dealing with outstanding issues facing victims and survivors.

Khulumani launches the ASIKAQEDI CAMPAIGN, 29 October 2014

October 29 2014 marks 16 years since President Mandela received the first TRC Report in Parliament. This was a very important step in the process of reckoning with the terrible damage that had been wrought by apartheid in our country.

When President Mandela received the report, he said, "The challenge is for all of us to protect our democratic gains like the apple of our eye. It is for those who have the means, to contribute to the efforts to repair the damage wrought by the past. It is for those who have suffered losses of different kinds and magnitudes to be afforded reparation, proceeding from the premise that freedom and dignity are the real prize that our sacrifices were meant to attain. Free at last, we are all masters of our destiny. A better future depends on all of us lending a hand - your hand, my hand."
