Charge laid against Aggett cop

The sister of an anti-apartheid activist who died in detention in the 1980s hopes that one of his interrogators will finally be brought to book, 32 years later. Neil Aggett's sister, Jill Burger, wants former security branch policeman Stephan Whitehead brought before a court to explain his "brutal behaviour".

November 23 was International Day to End Impunity: Access to Information is a Critical Requirement

Khulumani joins colleagues in raising the alarm on the evidence that the disclosure of information in South Africa is at an all time low.

In the week that President Zuma assented to the Protection of Personal Information Act, the PAIA Civil Society Network (CSN) published its evidence of the increasing difficulties in accessing information from organs of the state.

The PAIA CSN Shadow Report for 2013 reveals that "openness and transparency by information holders both in the public and private sector have decreased from the already worryingly low levels of compliance recorded by the PAIA CSN in previous years."

Khulumani congratulates SERI on its receipt of the 2013 Reconciliation Prize for its work in representing the families of the victims of the Marikana Massacre at the Marikana Commission

The Marikana Commission of Inquiry that was established "to investigate matters arising out of the tragic incidents at the Lonmin Mine in Marikana, in the North West Province" in August 2012 which led to the deaths of approximately 44 people, with more than 70 persons being injured, and approximately 250 people being arrested" currently continues its work towards the stated objectives of Truth, Restoration and Justice. http://www.marikanacomm.org.za
