Reparations, the unpaid account of the Truth and Reconciliation Process
The author contends that the final question about the contribution of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission will not be whether the Human Rights Violations Committee or even the Amnesty Committee were successful in their respective tasks of collecting data, as well as holding numerous victims' and amnesty hearings throughout the country, but concerns the question of reparation to the victims of apartheid. Raising his concern about the fact that government was slow to act upon the TRC’s reparation proposals, he underlines the reasons why proper reparation was of supreme importance to the victims as well as to the nation. After discussing the five categories of reparation proposals, the author suggests a number of areas where the faith communities in the country have a unique and significant contribution to make.
