Themba was a teenager during the years of South African Apartheid, and was present at many protests and marches. He remembers his youth as an angry time where he was forced to grow up very fast and without many options that were not violent. His path towards development was paved through his work in the arts, where he found means to channel his anger at first, and later his compassion

ELIZE

MORKEL

Secretary to NPC

Elize Morkel is a psychologist in private practice. With the transition of power in South Africa she experienced that a lot of the “certainties” that previously informed her life were shaken up. Elize became increasingly aware of the injustices of apartheid and the tremendous trauma that people are suffering as a result. She experienced a strong drive to help restore some of the injustices and inequality to which she, as white Afrikaner and member of the Dutch Reformed Church, contributed and from which she benefitted by enjoying the privileges that she took for granted all her life. 

Her DTh dissertation in practical theology, entitled Pastoral participation in transformation, reflects on practices that contribute to the transformation of racial, class and gender injustices.
