Report: The Matyana River School Water Forum Day - 2 September 2014

In celebration of the 24th annual World Water Week on the 2nd of September citizens from all over Grahamstown came together to broaden their understanding of the Kowie (Matyana) Catchment and how we as people living in this catchment play an integral role in caring for its health.

The group consisted of members from the citizen based research group Khulumani Water for Dignity, 14 learners from seven different schools and a member from the Community Water Forum based in Grahamstown East, representatives from the Institute for Water Research at Rhodes University, the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa, the Kowie Catchment Campaign, Young Water Professionals and the Albany Museum.

Khulumani responds to the misrepresentation of today’s march to Parliament by desperate pensioners from Nyanga Township, demanding restitution for homes that were demolished thirty years ago today, as an action driven by Khulumani Support Group

Today, a group of elderly pensioners from Nyanga township in Cape Town marched to Parliament in an attempt to draw attention to their demands for the restitution of their homes thirty years after they were demolished on 3 September 1984. Claims were made in the television footage screened by eTV that the group was comprised of Khulumani Support Group members. While Khulumani campaigns for these matters finally to be resolved fully and satisfactorily, we wish to clarify that the organization had nothing to do with the action that took place at Parliament today.
