Daughter of security cop says more people must speak up about apartheid crimes
The daughter of the man accused of killing anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol says more people must come forward to expose apartheid-era atrocities.
Former apartheid security branch policeman, Joao Rodrigues, was charged with Timol’s murder following an inquiry into his death last year.
Rodrigues' daughter Tilana Stander played a crucial role in helping Timol family track Rodrigues down.
Stander says she had a difficult childhood, was the outcast in the family and deeply feared her father.
In an interview on Radio 702, she revealed that her father sexually abused from the age of 8.
Stander says that opening up has been a part of her healing journey.
She says that she has now formed a precious relationship with Timol's nephew Imtiaz Cajee and the rest of the family.
Rodrigues will go on trial next year.
