JOHANNESBURG, 28 November 2016. The exhibition at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton, Johannesburg, entitled POISONED PASTS, gives an insight into the chemical and biological warfare programme of South Africa’s apartheid-regime [1948-1994]. It was inaugurated on 28 November 2016 and is open to the public until March 2017.
POISONED PASTS is a collaboration between the Institute for Security Studies, the University of Exeter, Stellenbosch University and Liverpool John Moors University. It includes photographs and press-releases originating from Khulumani, and interviews with Khulumani-members, whose loved ones were abducted using agents produced in the laboratories established by Dr Wouter Basson.
