On March 20, 2017, the MEC for Community Safety in Gauteng’s Provincial Legislature, the Honourable Ms Faith Mazibuko, made a surprise visit to the home of Khulumani Sharpeville Chairperson, Mrs Selloane Phethane to recognise Mrs Phethane’s lifelong efforts to support the struggles of women for protection from gender-based violence and for their economic empowerment.

Report: Khulumani Support Group participates in the Solidarity March against Xenophobia, 28 March 2017: We are all Africans

Staff from the Khulumani National Contact Centre joined the march against xenophobia on Tuesday, 28 March 2017, a sequel to the continuing attacks on residents in our communities whose countries of origin include the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Cameroon and Angola, amongst others. Most of the participants came from local civil society organisations including the African Diaspora Forum which handed over a memorandum to the Premier as well as civil rights groups, trade unions and women's organisations.

Khulumani makes a written submission to Parliament's High Level Panel on legislative gaps to be filled in order to accelerate fundamental change in South Africa

Following the presentation made to Parliament's High Level Panel on the Assessment of Key Legislation and the Acceleration of Fundamental Change by Khulumani representatives, Ms Nomarussia Bonase and Ms Marjorie Jobson, Khulumani further substantiated its oral submission with a written submission at the end of March 2017, to Working Group 3 of the High Level Panel which is focused on "What divides South Africans and what binds South Africans", including discrimination, social and economic exclusion, redress and transformation, levels of trust between citizens and institutions, and social solidarity and active participatory citizenship.

Khulumani Demands the Protection of the Victims’ Reparation Fund from Disbursement by Government as its Financial Year Closed and Unrepaired Victims of Apartheid Crimes face even greater economic hardship as a result of today’s Cabinet Shuffle

            In a move that has filled most ordinary citizens of South Africa with dismay, President Zuma in stealth in the early hours of March 31, 2017, announced a major Cabinet reshuffle that saw some of his closest allies protected from their removal despite their poor performance track records, while removing in one fell swoop, both the Minister of Finance Mr Pravin Gordhan and his Deputy Mr Mcebisi Jonas.

            Khulumani echoes the despair of the Archbishop of Cape Town, The Most Reverend Thabo Makgoba, that the impact of their removals will have devastating impacts on the poor in South Africa. The Archbishop has called this action by the President, utterly reckless and a reflection of his apparent profound indifference about the economic health of South Africa and its most vulnerable citizens.
