Charges against Ngwathe Independent Community Association (Nica) members dropped after they win their Case (No: B3/15) after four months of unnecessary disruption

On 18 May 2015, NICA, the Ngwathe Independent Community Association in Parys, won the case in which they faced charges of public violence and of convening an illegal gathering in Parys in the Free State in January 2015. 

Some members of NICA have been involved in a process initiated by the Department of Justice to allocate victims' reparations funds to the local municipality for infrastructure development, in the name of victims, but without their consent. In the process, a relationship has been established between the NICA members and Khulumani towards ensuring that all processes become community-driven towards empowering community members, rather than benefiting only persons chosen for patronage.
