Khulumani Limpopo Members selected for the Changing Practice course and project

Two weeks ago, Khulumani's Limpopo Coordinator, Ms Caroline Rathokolo accompanied by a Khulumani youth activist from Steelpoort participated in the first module of a programme being offered through AWARD (Association for Water and Rural Development) with funding support from USAID to build capacity amongst organisations with a community-based membership in the Olifants River catchment of Limpopo Province.

The purpose of the programme called CHANGING PRACTICE is to equip local community members along the Olifants River Catchment with skills for monitoring the impacts of climate change on the environment with a special focus on the impacts of the extensive coal mining across the province.

Khulumani Marks World Refugee Day, 20 June 2017 and submits written comments to the Refugee Amendment Bill [B 12B - 2016]

June 20 is commemorated each year as World Refugee Day by more than 100 countries across the world since 2001. The day reminds us all of the obstacles refugees face each year when they are forced to flee from their countries of origin because of persecution, war or violence. The criterion of persecution as a definition of who may be officially recognised as a refugee, is the finding that a person has convincing evidence of being vulnerable to persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.

Khulumani facilitates the crafting of a submission to Parliament from the indigenous Cobuqua community of the Eastern Cape

On 4 June 2017, the submission facilitated by Khulumani Support Group to the Portfolio Committee on Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, addressed the many unresolved issues facing Khoi-San communities in South Africa that government has to date failed to resolve. 

The submission raises the concerns of the Cobuqua people that the proposed amendment to the Traditional Leadership and Governance Framework Act uses as its starting point an assumption that the same remedy can be applied to traditional communities which have had stewardship of land on behalf of their communities for many decades while Khoi-San communities remain mostly landless, having been dispossessed of their land over many years.  

Khulumani Launches a Dedicated Enforced Disappearance Blog to Mark International Week of the Disappeared

Khulumani has launched a dedicated blog about the unresolved history of enforced, involuntary disappearances in South Africa to mark International Week for the Disappeared. Khulumani honours those who disappeared, brings the story to light of one who returned, and calls upon the government to stop the gross human rights violation of enforced disappearance from ever occurring again.
