On August 25 1993, Amy Biehl, an American Fulbright scholar working in South Africa against apartheid, was stabbed to death in a township near Cape Town. The four youths convicted of her murder were granted amnesty by TRC – a decision that was supported by Amy’s parents. Easy Nofemela and Ntobeko Peni, two of the convicted men, now work for the Amy Biehl Foundation Trust in Cape Town, a charity which dedicates its work to putting up barriers against violence.
