Post Mbeki South Africa: Where Are We Headed

Afesis-corplan is holding a seminar entitled “Post Mbeki South Africa: Where Are We Headed” on 21 November 2008 in East London.

The seminar is a follow on to the seminar on Post-Polokwane African National Congress held in August, and is inspired by the recent ‘high voltage’ political developments in the country. Once again, as part of our Public Awareness programme, Afesis-corplan is providing a platform for constructive debate and discussions on the likely impact of current political developments on governance in South Africa.

Amnesty International Criticises Nigeria Over Executions

Amnesty International (AI) says death row inmates in Nigeria witness the execution of fellow prisoners and are forced to clean their gallows.

AI researcher in Nigeria, Aster van Kregten points out that up to 763 people are on death row, there are no fair trials, and hundreds of such convicts could be innocent. Kregten maintains that appeals are often abandoned due to lost case files, noting that the criminal justice system is riddled with corruption, negligence and a lack of resources.
