The UK's Northern Irish minister is on his way to SA to review our Truth and Reconcilliation Commission, reports the Mail & Guardian. One wonders how they will have to adjust the process to their historical conflict, and who they select on their panel. Integral to the success of our TRC was the leadership and compassion of Archbishop Tutu, and it will be interesting to see who will be selected to head up the commission, and if that person can give it the crediblity it requires to be successful.
