Vuyani Green, based in the TRC's Cape Town office, joins the Commission from the University of Fort Hare, where he was the head of media liaison services and publications. He was formerly a journalist on the Daily Dispatch.
Mbulelo Sompetha will be based in the TRC's Johannesburg office. He has trained as a labour researcher and has worked as a journalist for a range of radio stations and publications, including SABC Radio, Bop Broadcasting Corp. and international television networks.
There are now five TRC media liaison officers. The appointment of new officers coincides with the expansion of the TRC's Amnesty Committee from 11 to 19. It also boosts the capacity of the media liaison office of the TRC to serve radio stations in a wider range of official languages.
