Human remains in Museums

Human remains in Museums

6 October 2019 9:39 PM

Guest : Dr Bongani Ndhlovu

On Thursday evening we had a discussion about the Khoi San exhibit that was removed
from public display in 2001, Dr Wendy Black and Dr Bongani Ndhlovu from Iziko
Museums were our guests, tonight we welcome back Dr Ndhlovu who is the Executive
Director Core Functions at Iziko Musuem for more on this topic
The repatriation and reburial of Sarah Baartman increased public awareness of past
atrocities on the indigenous peoples of South Africa. Many people are not aware that
museums house unethically collected human remains of many indigenous peoples
collected under questionable circumstances. The remains of these people await
repatriation and although repatriation is a museums’ objective, there are many
obstacles.
There was previously an exhibition that contained the empty boxes which currently
house human remains within the Iziko collections as well as that of the crate which
housed the coffin of Sarah Baartman.

SANDF probe clears soldiers of killing Collins Khosa, saying he was only 'pushed and clapped'

28 May 2020 8:53 PM

Guest : Eldred De Klerk | Senior policing and Social conflict specialist at Africa Centre
                                         for Security and Intelligence Praxis |

Soldiers accused of assaulting an Alexandra man, who later succumbed to his injures,
have been cleared of the charges.
According to a report attached to an affidavit which was handed to the Gauteng High
Court, an internal inquiry found that the soldiers cannot be held responsible for Collins
Khoza's death.
The report stated that Khoza was "pushed” and “klapped” and “conscious and healthy
when the security forces left.”
According to the South African National Defence Force's report, an internal board of
inquiry has concluded its investigation into the incident on April 10 and found that
neither the SANDF nor the Joburg Metro Police were at fault.
This, in spite of a post mortem report stating that Khosa had died of blunt force trauma
to the head. According to the SANDF report, there is no link between the injuries he
sustained and the actions of the soldiers.
