Preparing for the 51st Anniversary of Africa Day

May 25 is AFRICA DAY, the day that marks the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) in 1963. The day was originally called Africa Freedom Day. Its arose out of the efforts of African leaders and political activists who attended the first Conference of Independent African States in Ghana on April 15, 1963.

To mark the day, Khulumani will be joining the dialogue being organised by the Human Rights Institute of South Africa at Constitution Hill on 20 and 21 May 2014 entitled South Africa, the AU and the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance.

Please support the South African Coalition For Transitional Justice (SACTJ) in petitioning for Dr Wouter Basson to be removed from the register of medical practitioners

Found guilty by the Professional Conduct Committee of the Health Professions Council of South Africa of unprofessional / unethical conduct during his time as the head of the South African Defence Force’s (SADF’s) Project Coast, a secret apartheid-era chemical and biological weapons programme, and subsequently as Project Officer of the Delta G facility, the SACTJ considers Dr Basson's conduct to be of a nature serious enough to request the Health Professions Council to remove Dr Basson from the register of medical practitioners..

An Open Letter to President Jacob Zuma on the Eve of Elections 2014: 6 May 2014

Dear Mr President,

Introduction
We write this open letter to you, Honourable Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, on the eve of the 2014 Elections at a point in our history where we share widespread concern with others at the direction in which our country is moving. We anticipate that you will be returned as the President of South Africa and we write now to highlight issues that have not been addressed during your campaign for your re-election or during the last five years of your administration. We expect these concerns to feature as urgent business on the agenda of the administration that will be put into place once the results of the election are announced...

We therefore call on you and your office to follow through on the reasonable recommendations made at our meeting with Dr Cassius Lubisi, Director General in The Presidency on 27 March 2014, as soon as possible after the elections...

In Memory of Robin Williams

Robin williams

A prayer posted by Christine Sine which she wrote while thinking about the impact Robin Williams (the actor in Good Will Hunting and many other films) whose death has been devastating for many following his suicide this week. Robin Williams took his own life in a battle with major depression. In Khulumani, we too know the terrible impact of brokenness and pain.

God we know the wounds our world can inflict,
And have felt the heartache of its brokenness.
Let us have eyes to see and ears to hear,
That pain can give birth to laughter,
That humour often hides our fears.
Let us look at sorrow and anguish and not blink.
Accepting responsibility let us become pilgrims in the ruins,
Choosing to respond with love and compassion,
To all who are hurting and in pain.
