    Nomonde Calata to share her life-story at reverberations of history conference today

    Nomonde Calata, widow of assassinated anti-apartheid activist Fort Calata, will today reflect on her appearance at South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission 22 years ago, in conversation with former TRC commissioner, Professor Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela.

    Calata was among the first witnesses to appear at the TRC, in its first week of public hearings in April 1996.
