YouTube Version of Special Assignment: Ahmed Timol, 30 October 2017 Screening Featured


A 25 minute video by SABC Digital News of the Special Assignment edition of 30 October 2017, "Someone is to Blame" by Busisiwe Ntuli, that looks at the re-opening of the Ahmed Timol inquest.

The report also covers the deaths in custody of others like Steve Biko, Matthew Goniwe, and Dr. Neil Aggett.

On the 46 anniversary of his death, the court has finally pronounced that Ahmed Timol's death was not a result of suicide, but murder.

His family has been persistent in fighting for the second inquest into his death opened, following the first one in 1972, which found that no one was to blame for his death.

Many other families who are still looking for justice for their murdered family members now have hope that someday the courts will also pronounce that their beloved did not commit suicide but died as martyrs who fought till the end.
