An Eventful Week at the Marikana Commission as the Marikana Miners Strike enters ifs fourth month

As concern over the impasse in the resolution of the Marikana mine workers' strike deepens, Archbishop Makgoba has published a prayer (below) calling for an avoidance of any further bloodshed and for an equitable resolution of the unjustifiable income disparities between mine management and mine workers.

The publication of the Archbishop's prayer comes at the conclusion of an eventful week at the Marikana Commission with Captain Paul Bismarck Loest, Commander of the Tactical Response Team (TRT) during the Marikana shooting, being cross-examined by Advocate Nicole Lewis for the South African Human Rights Commission.

Preparing for the 51st Anniversary of Africa Day

May 25 is AFRICA DAY, the day that marks the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) in 1963. The day was originally called Africa Freedom Day. Its arose out of the efforts of African leaders and political activists who attended the first Conference of Independent African States in Ghana on April 15, 1963.

To mark the day, Khulumani will be joining the dialogue being organised by the Human Rights Institute of South Africa at Constitution Hill on 20 and 21 May 2014 entitled South Africa, the AU and the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance.
