Khulumani is anticipating participating in a multi-country comparative study into the needs of individuals and their families injured as a result of political violence in South Africa. Previous studies conducted by the Political Science Department of the University of Surrey have focused on identifying the needs of victims of the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland and of their carers. One respondent in that study pointed out that “People who suffer from injuries are made to look like beggars if we need help. Doctors and government say it’s our past and we have to move on. This is our present.”
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.
