TRC under spotlight as victims are dissatisfied with the commission

A non- profit community based organization called Khulumani held a peaceful march to parliament today to handover a memorandum demanding the payment of reparation of the victims of gross human rights violation under apartheid that were left unpaid by the TRC.

One of the victims, Shenxiswa Constance Mlung from KTC, Nyanga who suffered a great deal during apartheid, shared her suffering. “We didn’t get any compensation from the TRC. When our houses were set alight in KTC, we were told to go to a certain hall in Athlone where we were only given R2 as reparation by the people who claimed to be from the TRC.

Constance Mlungu said I’m hoping this much will yield good results so that we may be compensated as the victims who suffered a lot during the apartheid”.

The memorandum was accepted by Collin Dubrein, an Arial court manager at Cape Town Magistrate’s Court, on behalf of the department of Justice and Constitutional Development.
