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. Her wail of anguish as she described the police killing of her husband and three colleagues – referred to in death as the Cradock Four – reduced the East London City Hall to a flood of tears and powerfully symbolised the traumatic journey on which the country was embarking to examine its past.

Commemorating Five Years Since Madiba's Passing on 5 December 2013

Today Khulumani joins the world in marking five years since the passing of Tata Madiba, our country’s founding President and a global icon of humanity’s possibility for building better societies in which all people are accepted for their humanity and their equal worth and dignity; in which we strive everyday to make advances in ending the suffering of people wherever they may be.

May we recognize that the power to love and serve all humanity resides in every one of us. Today Khulumani remembers the lessons imparted by a beloved statesman and welcomes the announcement by the African Union of the Nelson Mandela Decade 2019 - 2029. May God bless Africa, heal her communities, protect her children and give her peace. 

Media Statement from Nkosi ZMD Mandela, MP and Member of the Pan African Parliament:

The Nepalese Struggle for Truth and Reparations Mirrors the Continuing Struggle in South Africa: A Stalled Truth and a Lack of a Comprehensive Reparation Policy: Ram Bhadran reports from Kathmandu

Give me some truth - The government has disregarded the courts and lied with regard to transitional justice by - Ram Kumar Bhandari

Transitional justice in Nepal has been politically and practically derailed but remains technically sustained so that the authorities can save face. While thousands of victims struggle on a daily basis to keep their demand for justice alive, the Nepal Army and Nepal Police are obstructing the process for a fair investigation.
