Ahmed Timol commemorated at Apartheid Museum from Saturday 1 August


South Africa’s reluctance to hold apartheid era perpetrators of human rights atrocities accountable for their crimes will be the elephant in the room when an exhibition on the life and times of activist Ahmed Timol opens at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg this week.


Timol, who died while in police custody in October 1971, was closely connected to the Pahad brothers – Essop and Aziz – and once travelled to the then-Soviet Union for political training with former President Thabo Mbeki.
