Time for a New Kairos demanding the Right to Truth for victims of the political crimes of the past

A CALL FOR A NEW KAIROS IN SOUTH AFRICA 30 YEARS AFTER THE 1985 RUSTENBURG CONFERENCE ADOPTED THE KAIROS DOCUMENT: TIME TO DEMAND TRUTH FOR FAMILY MEMBERS OF VICTIMS OF POLITICALLY MOTIVATED CRIMES: 11 AUGUST 2015

The 30th anniversary of the adoption of the important Kairos document in 1985 will be marked with a ceremony on 18 August 2015 at the Regina Mundi Church in Soweto. “Kairos” is the ancient Greek word for ‘a right or opportune moment’. In 1985, under a state of emergency, many concerned church leaders took a stand in calling for churches to end their support for apartheid and for the apartheid regime. The ‘Standing for the Truth’ campaign was one powerful outcome of this ‘kairos’.

Justice Albie Sachs Speaks of why Neil Aggett's Life Mattered: 2015 Neil Aggett Memorial Lecture

On 13 July 2015 in the chapel of Kingswood College, Grahamstown, Justice Albie Sachs gave the Neil Aggett Memorial Lecture to a full audience of senior school learners who attend the college.

Justice Sachs deviated from the speech he had prepared after meeting and talking to Neil's nephew, Michael and Michael's mother, the widow of Michael Aggett, Neil's older brother who had also been a medical doctor, practising in Prince Albert as a general practitioner until his untimely passing.

The young audience listened in rapt attention to the story that Justice Sachs related - of how Neil as a detainee almost twenty years after he had himself been a detainee, was becoming more than a name to him through this visit to Kingswood College, that Neil was becoming a real person, beyond being only a name embodied with idealism and sacrifice.
