15 YEARS SINCE THE 1998 TRC REPORT: Are Survivors and Victims of Apartheid Atrocities Worse Off than Before?

15 YEARS SINCE THE 1998 TRC REPORT:
Are Survivors and Victims of Apartheid Atrocities Worse Off than Before?

A Public Debate at Constitution Hill   Tuesday 5 November 2013, 17:30 – 20:00   All Welcome

When former President Mandela accepted the five volumes of the 1998 TRC Report on 29 October 1998, he called for a generosity of spirit in making good on providing reparations to survivors and families of victims of apartheid crimes.  He said,

“It is for those who have the means, to contribute to the efforts to repair the damage wrought by the past… (so that those) who have suffered losses of different kinds and magnitudes (may) be afforded reparation, proceeding from the premise that freedom and dignity are the real prize that our sacrifices were meant to attain.”

The generosity of spirit that former President Mandela sought to call forth, did not materalise and in many respects, there has been a widespread lack of commitment to make good on the aspirations contained in the Preamble that states,

“We, the people of South Africa, recognize the injustices of our past; Honour those who suffered for justice and freedom in our land’ Respect those who have worked to build and develop our country; and Believe that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, united on our diversity.”
