Khulumani Support Group (KSG) was established in 1995 by the survivors and families of the victims of the political conflict of South Africa’s past apartheid’s regime. As a non-governmental organisation KSG is constituted by victims of apartheid-era violence in South Africa. Through its programmes, the organisation supports victims in their efforts to restore their own dignity and to rebuild their lives with the goal of facilitating their reintegration into mainstream society.
Khulumani means "Speak Out" in Zulu and was formed as an umbrella body operating under the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR), until it de-linked itself in 1999.
Khulumani had dedicated most of its time and resources in addressing the demands of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) up to 2000. From 2001 to date, Khulumani has concentrated on winding-up the major issues that have formed the “TRC Unfinished Business”.
Jubilee South Africa
Jubilee South Africa struggles for the cancellation and repudiation of apartheid debt and other illegitimate debt and the payment of reparations in order to combat the negative impact of HIV/AIDS, poverty, and globalisation.
Some of SANGOCO members - Freedom of Expression Institute and the Environmental Justice Network are leading members of the Jubilee South Africa campaign.
On 11 November 2002, the Khulumani Support Group, an organisation of survivors of apartheid violence, instituted a lawsuit in the U S against 23 multinational corporations, for their role in human rights abuses committed in apartheid South Africa. The lawsuit is supported by Jubilee South Africa and a number of national and international organizations.
