TRC Matters | Families hope NPA will uncover truth about apartheid crimes that were not prosecuted

Jan 16, 2023 • #SABCNews

The NPA says 64 new cases have been registered for investigation emanating from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The TRC was a court-like body that the democratic South African government had established in 1995. The aim was to heal and reconcile the country’s people by uncovering the truth about human rights violations that had occurred during the apartheid era. The NPA says 25 prosecutors and 40 investigators have been dealing specifically with TRC matters. Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza has also been appointed to review their measures to deal with and prosecute those involved in the cases. To discuss this further, we are joined in studio, by author and nephew of Ahmed Timol, Imtiaz Cajee; journalist, author, and son of Fort Calata, Lukhanyo Calata, as well as Dr Marjorie Jobson who is the Director at Khulumani Support group join us via zoom.
