Submission made by Centre for Human Rights in respect of Draft Regulations for Community Rehabilitation

On 29 November 2013, the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development published in the Government Gazette a set of draft regulations for community rehabilitation.

The period for public comments closed on 31 January 2014. Khulumani welcomes the range of submissions from concerned organisations and individuals who expressed their views about the ways in which these regulations largely fail to afford to victims of apartheid atrocities, the human rights protected in both South African and international law.

On National Reconciliation Day, 16 December 2013, Khulumani Calls for ‘a Revolution of Restitution’ as the Basis for Reconciliation

In the many tributes to former President Nelson Mandela since his passing on 5 December 2013, attention has focused on Mandela's stated mission of liberating both the oppressed and the oppressor from the impact of racist rule in what has been interpreted as a "triumph of forgiveness". Sadly the relationship between oppressor and oppressed remains largely untransformed at this time of Mandela's passing.

It is true that Mandela emerged from prolonged imprisonment without rancour and set about trying to unite people across social boundaries. This commitment led Mandela to compromise some tenets of the Freedom Charter that he had helped to construct. One of the political necessities Mandela faced was that of "sealing a deal with global capital" - a deal that has contributed to deepening poverty, widening inequality and the economic exclusion of almost half the country's population, all realities that Mandela abhorred.
