CITY PRESS published a powerful and moving story of the spiritual repatriation of activist operatives Sizwe Kondile, Selby Mavuso and Johannes Sambo, that took place in Komatipoort on 31 June and at Freedom Park on 1 July 2016.

The article covered Khulumani's recent trip to Komatipoort to accompany the family of Johannes Sweet Sambo whose father was tortured to death by Lebombo Security Police for his underground activities in 1991.

At the time of Mr Sambo's death, the oldest child Vusi was 7 years old and the youngest was three months. Mrs Sambo died after attending a TRC hearing in 1996 leaving 5 children orphaned and unsupported. The children contacted Khulumani about two years ago and Khulumani profiled their story in the New Age newspaper and subsequently their story was picked up by Leihlo la Sechaba in a documentary that was screened on 17 December 2015. 

For Khulumani, the promises made by Minister Masutha, by the Mayor and Municipal Manager of Nkomazi Local Municipality and by the Mpumalanga Province MKVA give hope of educational assistance for the children. The DMV (Department of Military Veterans) has committed to taking the children to the Verdacht SAPS Explosives Training Centre in western Limpopo to show them the site at which their father's body was disposed through the use of explosives so that no remains might be found of recovered.
