Ahmed Timol commemorated in historic exhibition and dialogue
Anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol has been remembered in a historic exhibition and dialogue at Freedom Park.
Timol died in October 1971 after falling from the 10th floor of the then John Vorster Square Police Station.
Timol's family began trying to unearth the real version and evidence of events after rejecting claims from the original inquest which suggests he committed suicide.
The inquest was reopened in 2017.
Timol's nephew Imtiaz Cajee says the commemoration did not only highlight the sacrifices made by the struggle hero but by many others.
It put into context the sacrifices made by many many others who remain voiceless, like Ntate Ben Kgoathe whose dad died in police custody in 1969.Imtiaz Cajee, Ahmed Timol's nephew
Yes, remembrance of the tragic, painful past but also inspiring us to continue to do the right things in a democratic South Africa.Imtiaz Cajee, Ahmed Timol's nephew
