The South African Civil Society Information Service (SACSIS) - - has been disseminating social justice content to the print media for five years. Our news analyses and op-eds have been published in a wide range of South Africa’s daily newspapers.

SACSIS is pleased to announce that we are expanding our content production and dissemination beyond print to the production of podcasts for dissemination via audio platforms such as campus and community radio stations.

SACSIS’ Fazila Farouk talks to Marjorie Jobson, Director of the Khulumani Support Group who provides an update of South Africa’s apartheid reparations case that has been on going for a decade. According to Jobson, a lack of corporate accountability for apartheid crimes has resulted in apartheid era practices reproducing themselves in certain sectors of the post-apartheid economy, such as mining. She links the strife in Marikana today to the fact that mining companies were allowed to wipe the slate clean at the onset of democracy.

Jobson is highly critical of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission about which she says:

“Reconciliation isn’t the cheap thing it was made at the Truth Commission where victims were acclaimed for their willingness to embrace perpetrators. We felt that was an appalling thing to promote in this country. It was a shallow process…”
