Advocate Thuli Madonsela paid tribute to Neil Aggett in her lecture that highlighted the possibilities for each of us to keep alive the flames of justice by standing up against injustice wherever we are. She inspired the Kingswood School and Grahamstown community with her arguments that it is in taking care of small things that we make the biggest differences. She encouraged each person to contribute to making these stands wherever they might be.

Khulumani Support Group is a member of the Neil Aggett Support Group and serves as a coordinating focus for meetings of the group in continuing efforts to secure justice for Neil and the prosecution of those who failed to apply for amnesty for his torture and death in detention in the then-John Vorster Square police cells in on 5 February 1982. Neil was 28 years old at the time. He was a medical doctor who supported his union organising efforts in the food and canning industry through his employment as a doctor.

The judicial inquest into Neil's death in detention determined that his death had been an "induced suicide' in the context of 70 days of detention and continuous torture focused on "breaking him."
