A FAREWELL TO FIDEL on his Passing on 26 November 2016: Extracted from the Tribute by Dr Dayan Jayatilleka on GROUNDVIEWS

Fidel was the last of the Titans, of the epic heroes. Whatever our travails, our generation and the ones before us were fortunate to live in the decades in which there were great leaders, visionaries who combined their ideal with action and changed the world they inherited. Our generation and one, perhaps two before that, lived consciously in the twentieth century which was inhabited by such heroes who fought colossal enemies against incredible odds; led and changed reality and became legend.

25 November 2016 - International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women: Putting the spotlight on the pervasive culture of gender-based violence in South Africa and its consequences

25 November 2016: Khulumani launches its Honouring Khwezi Blog to mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women: Putting the spotlight on the pervasive culture of gender-based violence in South Africa and its consequences

The marking of the 16 Days of Activism to end gender-based violence in South Africa has this year assumed a greater poignancy with the untimely passing of Khwezi, on 8 October 2016. As the President’s rape accuser, she was subjected to demonstrations of extreme chauvinism and abuse during the President’s rape trial, both inside the court and on the streets outside. Khwezi did not receive the justice or the protection she deserved.

Khulumani is Awarded a Restitution Award for its Victim-Offender Dialogues, Victim Support and Advocacy, 10 November 2016, Castle of the Cape of Good Hope

In the closing session of the Inaugural Restitution Conference, held in the Cape of Good Hope Castle on 9 and 10 November 2016, Khulumani Support Group was awarded one of three Restitution Awards for "the groundbreaking process facilitated by Khulumani Support Group between the people of Worcester and Stephanus Coetzee."

The citation reads, "Together, through their journey, they have engaged with the tragedy of the 1996 Worcester bombing. This has allowed for broader acknowledgment of the abuse of our Apartheid past, accountability, truth telling, sincere remorse, unconditional apology, clearly defined extent of forgiveness and ultimately, has facilitated the commitment to restitution as a community.  Together they have opened the path and define another model of restitution for our country. The well-known author, Alexandra Fuller, in her article “Mandela’s Children”, provides an intimate account of this restitution journey travelled by people like Tshepho Madlingozi of Khulumani Support Group, Olga Macingwane as one of the victims of Worcester Bombing and Stephanus Coetzee as an offender."

The three citations are attached along with the photograph of the award made to Khulumani's Chairperson, Mr Tshepo Madlingozi
