Khulumani Marks the 40th Anniversary of the Death of Steve Biko and Remembers Neville Alexander

This week Khulumani received a sculpture of Steve Biko produced by Khulumani associate living in Kwaggafontein in former KwaNdebele, Mr Abraham Mampane, a local wood carver who has produced a collection of representations of iconic South Africans. Mr Mampane’s sculpture was produced as a trophy for the annual Grahamstown-based Steve Biko Speech Competition held each year in September and organised by Xolile Madinda, who has spearheaded many powerful initiatives for young people in Makana Municipality, including the annual Fingo Festival (founded with the support of Khulumani Support Group) and the Puku Children’s Book Festival supported over the years by patrons Zakes Mda and Elinor Sisulu.


The Department of Justice has amended the existing regulations on education assistance to allow for additional monetary assistance for which applications can be made for persons declared victims by the TRC and / or their dependants or relatives.

This assistance will only be provided in respect of programmes leading to a qualification and covers the details of additional monetary assistance for which an application can be made, including for devices, for meals and for the settlement of outstanding debts at the institution.

Week 5: Climbing Mountains - Bailey Robbins

Week 5 at Khulumani opened my eyes to a reality I hadn’t quite considered yet. Up until this point, all my research, writing, interviews and other work have revolved around enforced disappearances of the past. Most of the cases I work with took place before I was even born. In South Africa people often speak of a healing country, a country that is moving forward from the past. When I deal with enforced disappearances that took place here, I think of the crime in the context of Apartheid. I think of it as something that doesn't happen anymore.
