Khulumani takes further steps in working to end xenophobia against African non-nationals in South Africa

1. Khulumani endorses an open letter to the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, presently meeting in Banjul in The Gambia for its 56thOrdinary Session between 21 April and 7 May 2015, following a sitting of the NGO Forum (between 17 and 19 April 2015). The letter proposed by the Southern African Litigation Centre, calls on governments to work to:

A CALL FOR AFRICAN SOLIDARITY IN REJECTING THREATS TO THE CONTINENT'S PEACE AND SECURITY ON THE BASIS OF RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION

The killings being perpetuated in different regions of Africa in the name of Islam, violate the founding principles of African democracy. Khulumani adds it voice to those of others who condemn the heinous crimes of individuals who identify as Islamic militants and who have perpetrated atrocities most recently in Kenya with the killing of Christian students at Garissa University as Christians were celebrating Easter.

On the Forum at eight this morning we ask; Why are APLA's so-called political prisoners still in jail almost 21 years into democracy? Sakina Kamwendo speaks to Dr Marjorie Jobson, National Director of Khulumani and the PAC’s Deputy President Sibusiso Xaba
