Khulumani facilitates the crafting of a submission to Parliament from the indigenous Cobuqua community of the Eastern Cape

On 4 June 2017, the submission facilitated by Khulumani Support Group to the Portfolio Committee on Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, addressed the many unresolved issues facing Khoi-San communities in South Africa that government has to date failed to resolve. 

The submission raises the concerns of the Cobuqua people that the proposed amendment to the Traditional Leadership and Governance Framework Act uses as its starting point an assumption that the same remedy can be applied to traditional communities which have had stewardship of land on behalf of their communities for many decades while Khoi-San communities remain mostly landless, having been dispossessed of their land over many years.  

Khulumani Launches a Dedicated Enforced Disappearance Blog to Mark International Week of the Disappeared

Khulumani has launched a dedicated blog about the unresolved history of enforced, involuntary disappearances in South Africa to mark International Week for the Disappeared. Khulumani honours those who disappeared, brings the story to light of one who returned, and calls upon the government to stop the gross human rights violation of enforced disappearance from ever occurring again.

PRESS RELEASE: Khulumani Support Group resonates with the content of the “Betrayal of the Promise” Report: 28 May 2017

Khulumani Support Group congratulates the State Capacity Research Project convened by Professor Mark Swilling for publishing a comprehensive report on its interpretation and construction of “State Capture”. The title of the report resonates deeply with Khulumani and its members.1 Khulumani Support Group is a membership organisation of victims and survivors and their families of apartheid-era gross human rights violations. Our membership presently stands at about 104,000.

One of the features of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was that victims of such violations, would be granted reparations in return for the sacrifice of their right to lay criminal charges, or to bring civil claims against perpetrators who were granted amnesty. Many perpetrators are walking freely, while a majority of their victims find themselves still in the very confines of the apartheid trap they were struggling against, without reparations. This is a betrayal of the promise.

Khulumani Limpopo Meets DOJ&CD in Polokwane to Raise Ongoing Concerns: Response expected by 19 May 2017

On 26 April 2017, the Limpopo Provincial Leadership of Khulumani Support Group met with Ntate Kgosimang from the Polokwane Office of the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development. 

In this meeting, a letter to the Director-General, Mr Vusi Madonsela in the National Department of Justice, was submitted in which Khulumani Limpopo introduced their request for Mr Madonsela's intervention to stop all ongoing activities that appear to try to seduce uninformed communities with offers of money from The President's Fund.
