Apartheid lawsuit passes another hurdle

THAT the South African media barely noticed a decision of a federal court in New York on April 17 is hardly surprising. Not only were we mesmerised by quite different proceedings in Pretoria, but our fifth democratic elections are imminent.

Yet the judgment is a momentous one for South Africans claiming civil damages for injuries suffered under the apartheid regime. What is more, together with other class actions wending their way through the federal courts, the decision may change the way multinationals around the world do business.

Join us as we celebrate the life of our comrade, colleague and friend, Zweli Mkhize on Wednesday 30 April.

A memorial service will be held in the SACC Chapel in Khotso House, 62 Marshall Street, Marshalltown, Johannesburg.

Desmond Tutu Mourns the Failure of the Post-Apartheid State to Fulfill the Promise of the TRC in South Africa

Khulumani welcomes the powerful assertion made by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu that the post-apartheid government has failed the citizens of this country in tragically falling short on fulfilling the possibilities that were opened up by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for seeing through the healing of our nation and all its people. He explains that "the tardy and limited payments of reparations to victims of human rights violations eroded the very dignity that the Commission sought to build."

Khulumani Support Group works for the very specific objective of realising the healing and transformation of the lives of the thousands of struggle activists whose wounds remain unattended 20 years after apartheid.

Khulumani engages the office of the DG in The Presidency - 27 March 2014

As Khulumani groups across the country agitated for responses by government to its unceasing advocacy over the past 16 years for processes of securing justice and healing for victims of apartheid gross human rights violations, and as Khulumani groups prepared for a National Day of Action for Redress, Reparations, Restitution and Justice on 27 March 2014, the organisation received an invitation to meet with officials in the office of the Director-General in The Presidency, Dr Cassius Lubisi.
