Abstract

Khulumani, an organisation that represents victims of apartheid human rights abuses who feel that they have not benefited from the TRC and other nation-building processes, takes the position that both reconciliation and reparations are necessary conditions for restorative, redistributive and social justice. The group therefore continues to petition the South African government and the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development (DOJCD) to honour the payment of reparations to victims of apartheid crimes against humanity.
