Khulumani responds to the misrepresentation of today's march to parliament by desperate pensioners

[Johannesburg, 4 September 2014] - Khulumani has responded to the misrepresentation of today's march to parliament by desperate pensioners from Nyanga Township, demanding restitution for homes that were demolished 30 years ago today, as an action driven by Khulumani Support Group.

Today, a group of elderly pensioners from Nyanga township in Cape Town marched to Parliament in an attempt to draw attention to their demands for the restitution of their homes 30 years after they were demolished on 3 September 1984. Claims were made in the television footage screened by eTV that the group was comprised of Khulumani Support Group members.

While Khulumani campaigns for these matters finally to be resolved fully and satisfactorily, we wish to clarify that the organisation had nothing to do with the action that took place at Parliament today. We understand that the group that conducted the march today had collected money through voluntary collections to enable them to hire a lawyer to take forward their demands for the restitution of their destroyed homes.
