    This feels very sad and emotionally draining, how I wish it was done and finished with the initial request. It’s now opening old wounds when it should have been closed and the family would have found closure. Psychology proves that healing is when you accept the truth and move on… My heart goes mostly for Mr Cajee, the effort he took are beyond measure. May the Lord mend your hearts and give you the peace that surpasses all the understanding

    Thanks

  2. It is indeed pleasing that at last the Timol family can get closure on how their beloved Ahmed Timol died. The circumstances about his death still leaves a sour taste. Praise should go to his nephew Imtiaz Cajee for holding firm to resolve this matter. It is hoped that the inquest will deliver closure once and for all.

  3. Looking at Adv. George Bizos reliving the memories of 1971/2 is a clear testimony as to how agonising it can be to surrender the truth to the passing of time. Imtiaz Cajee worked tirelessly to reach a point that the re-opening of the inquest would provide a firm and reliable conclusion to what happened to his beloved uncle. It is a matter of having regard to the sacrifices people made to bring about the South Africa of today that should encourage democratic space to work for total healing. Many families are really in need of closure and should get it for the best of posterity.
    We belong!
