An Open Letter to President Jacob Zuma on the Eve of Elections 2014: 6 May 2014

Dear Mr President,

Introduction
We write this open letter to you, Honourable Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, on the eve of the 2014 Elections at a point in our history where we share widespread concern with others at the direction in which our country is moving. We anticipate that you will be returned as the President of South Africa and we write now to highlight issues that have not been addressed during your campaign for your re-election or during the last five years of your administration. We expect these concerns to feature as urgent business on the agenda of the administration that will be put into place once the results of the election are announced...

We therefore call on you and your office to follow through on the reasonable recommendations made at our meeting with Dr Cassius Lubisi, Director General in The Presidency on 27 March 2014, as soon as possible after the elections...

Apartheid lawsuit passes another hurdle

THAT the South African media barely noticed a decision of a federal court in New York on April 17 is hardly surprising. Not only were we mesmerised by quite different proceedings in Pretoria, but our fifth democratic elections are imminent.

Yet the judgment is a momentous one for South Africans claiming civil damages for injuries suffered under the apartheid regime. What is more, together with other class actions wending their way through the federal courts, the decision may change the way multinationals around the world do business.

Join us as we celebrate the life of our comrade, colleague and friend, Zweli Mkhize on Wednesday 30 April.

A memorial service will be held in the SACC Chapel in Khotso House, 62 Marshall Street, Marshalltown, Johannesburg.

Desmond Tutu Mourns the Failure of the Post-Apartheid State to Fulfill the Promise of the TRC in South Africa

Khulumani welcomes the powerful assertion made by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu that the post-apartheid government has failed the citizens of this country in tragically falling short on fulfilling the possibilities that were opened up by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for seeing through the healing of our nation and all its people. He explains that "the tardy and limited payments of reparations to victims of human rights violations eroded the very dignity that the Commission sought to build."

Khulumani Support Group works for the very specific objective of realising the healing and transformation of the lives of the thousands of struggle activists whose wounds remain unattended 20 years after apartheid.
