Victims of gross human rights abuses during the years of apartheid will receive a R30 000 once-off final reparation payment, South African President Thabo Mbeki announced in the National Assembly on Tuesday afternoon.

The grant would go to the 22 000 individuals or surviving members of families of victims identified by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). Of these 19 000 had already received interim reparations.
"With regard to final reparations, government will provide a once-off grant of R30 000 to those individuals or survivors designated by the TRC. This is over and above other material commitments that we have already mentioned."
