Khulumani associate Dr Ben Khumalo-Seegelken travelled from Oldenburg in Germany this weekend to join the people of uMbumbulu in a cleansing and reconciliation ceremony that took place on Sunday 27 October 2013 at eZimwini (Ogagwini Area) in the uMbumbulu District.
Dr Ben's visit to South Africa in September 2013 led to the reactivation of processes that had been initiated in 2010 when the first such ceremony was held in Vulindlela. See the attached paper entitled 'UkuHlambulukelana nokuBuyisana – - Cleansing and Reconciling in KwaZulu-Natal Today' which describes the origin of the ceremony of ukubuyisana“, meaning to 'meet halfway in order to proceed together and to bury the hatchet.'
The Foundation for Human Rights (FHR) has recently published interviews with widows conducted during a series of Khulumani rights education workshops.
On Friday and Saturday, 25 and 26 October 2013, members of Khulumani Support Group from Mamelodi in Tshwane will be participating in activities planned to commemorate the life of Mr Moss Morudu following extensive unsuccessful efforts by the Missing Persons' Task Team (MPTT) in the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to find his remains.
The ceremony will involve a SYMBOLIC spiritual repatriation of his remains from the site at which it appears his body was blown up.
Moss Morudu was an internal member of the MK unit that comprised Jabu Masina, Ting Ting Masango, Neo Potsane and Joseph Makhura. Moss disappeared on 26 October 1987, aged 22.
Amnesty applicants from the Northern Transvaal Security Police stated to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) that they had abducted him and held him at Kaallaagte Farm near Hammanskraal where he they had interrogated and tortured him.
