EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR EDUCATION BENEFITS - Dep of Justice extends closing date for education assistance applications of TRC-identified victims of apartheid

The DOJ has extended the education benefits to people with TRR numbers for 2015; the new deadline is now 31 March.  Following many complaints that many people could not meet the 7 February deadline for new Education Benefits offered for people who have a TRR number, the Department of Justice has extended the deadline for 2015 to 31 March.  This statement was put on the Department of Justice website on 24 February. 

Khulumani is presenting its work on group-based processes for psychosocial rehabilitation and community empowerment at the Second African Regional Conference of the International Association for Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes

Khulumani will share its work with survivors of torture, with the families and widows of the Marikana Massacre and with Older Women as Community Activists against stigma related to HIV / AIDS.

The Professional Conduct Committee of the Health Professions Council of South Africa reconvenes in the HPCSA Council Chamber at the Main HPCSA Building, 553 Madiba Street, Arcadia, Pretoria at 10:00 on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 March 2015

This follows the application of Dr Basson to the High Court on 5 February 2015 requesting the recusal of the two doctors who chair the Committee Hearing, Professor Jannie Hugo and Dr Eddie Mhlanga on grounds that they are members of the South African Medical Association (SAMA), some members of which submitted a petition calling for the removal of Dr Basson from the register of medical practitioners. Neither Professor Hugo nor Dr Mhlanga hold any formal position in SAMA. This attempt to deflect and delay the processes underway were commented on in an open letter from Professor Leslie London, one of the original complainants in the case to Mail & Guardian Health journalist, Ms Mia Malan responding to an article she published. Professor London's open letter was never published.
