Former activists slate TRC unit

A GROUP of former liberation activists, who suffered at the hands of the apartheid security police, have lashed out at the government for failing to implement the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee (TRC) that they should be financially compensated.

The Khulumani support group – a national body that represents about 90000 former anti-apartheid activists – are frustrated because it claims the government only recognised the contributions made by the Umkhonto weSizwe veterans while others were left out in the cold.


Khulumani members, joined by Amabutho members, staged an all-day sit-in at the ANC regional offices in Nelson Mandela Bay on Monday.

Because the regional leaders were out of town at the time, they had a meeting with them on Tuesday where they aired their grievances. 

Struggle activists receive a fair hearing and commitments from the Eastern Cape ANC Regional Executive that the 'Unfinished Business of the TRC" will be raised to the national agenda, Port Elizabeth, 4 June 2014

On 2 June, 2014, Khulumani members in Mandela Metro joined by the Amabutho, staged a sit-in for the entire day at the ANC Regional Offices in Govan Mbeki Avenue in Port Elizabeth. By the evening, the SAPS had been called and an agreement was reached with the ANC officials that they would request the ANC Provincial Executive to meet with the group on the following afternoon from 13:00.
