NPA must prosecute apartheid era crimes
Apartheid victims’ families asked Ramaphosa to prioritise the 300 cases that were referred to the NPA for further investigations.
The families of apartheid victims have, in a letter, asked President Cyril Ramaphosa to prioritise the 300 cases that were referred to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for further investigations 20 years ago. An extract from the letter reads “We, family and friends of apartheid’s victims who were unjustly killed, thus use this opportunity to petition you, as our country’s State President, to do the very least and that is to honor the souls of our country’s martyrs; individuals who had valiantly sacrificed their lives to attain social justice for us all. Although we only remind you of the names of Imam Abdullah Haron, Nicodemus Kgoathe, Simon Modipane, James Lenkoe, Caleb Mayekiso, Michael Shivute and Jacob Monnakgotla since this year (2019) is the 50th year of their killings while they were held in detention, we should not forget the names of many others such as Steve Biko, Mapetla Mohapi, Matthews Mabelane, and Neil Agget.” On #SAfmSunrise with Stephen Grootes spoke to Cassiem Khan -National Imam Haron Foundation (IHF) co-ordinator.
