Global Networking Session 11:00am, Thu 30th Jun 2022

Price: 

Free

Welcome to the SACC UK monthly virtual networking!

Having started virtual networking in response to the pandemic, despite the return to in-person events in the East of England Chapter we have decided to continue with virtual sessions and open them up for a wider global audience.

We've already had participation from the UK, South Africa and Namibia, and our informal networking events are also really good fun. It's great to get to meet other members and supporters of the Chamber, regardless of their geographical location, and it's also a great way to generate business. People prefer to do business with people they know, and these sessions offer a fantastic opportunity to get to know new, like-minded people with an interest in all things South African.

So, wherever you're based, please consider joining us for an informal, no-frills, networking session on Thursday, 30th June, which will officially relaunch as the SACC UK virtual network space. It's open to all businesses with an interest in South African and UK trade.

The networking is free to attend, but booking is essential.

Zoom links will be sent out in the 24 hours prior to the event.

Unforgiven: Face to face with my father's killer 10:30am, Fri 15th Jul 2022

Price: 

Free

John Battersby, Journalist and former Director of the South African Chamber of Commerce in the UK will be in conversation with Liz McGregor, author of the book “UNFORGIVEN” about the murder of her father.
 
They will talk about the book, which is a raw, intimate memoir tracing the author’s attempt to find out the truth about her father’s murder. Robin McGregor, renowned founder of Who Owns Whom, which exposed the extent of the concentration of capital under apartheid, is brutally murdered in his home in Tulbagh, near Cape Town.  Cecil Thomas is convicted of the crime, but his trial leaves more questions than answers. As much as his daughter, former Guardian journalist Liz McGregor, tries to move beyond her grief – she finds new work, she even discovers love – she still wants answers. What drove Thomas to torture and kill a complete stranger?

The author meets the murderer’s family and learns that he comes from a loving, comfortable home. He is educated and skilled, there is no apparent reason for his descent into delinquency. After protracted obstruction from the prison authorities, she finally gets to confront him but not without putting herself in danger. She finds answers, but not the answers she is looking for.

Unforgiven tells a story seldom told: what happens to a family when one of their own is murdered? In a country where, year upon year, tens of thousands of people lose a loved one to violence. Where restorative justice is preached but not practiced. Where prisons are universities of crime. What would it take to achieve redemption? For the victim, the perpetrator and the country.

LIZ McGREGOR has written and edited several books including Load-shedding, At Risk, Touch Pause Engage, Springbok Factory and Khabzela. She has worked as a journalist in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Seoul and London, including several years as deputy editor of the op-ed section of The Guardian. She currently lives in Cape Town and London.
