This is an archive of the Treatment Action Campaign's public documents from December 1998 until October 2008. I created this website because the TAC's website appears unmaintained and people were concerned that it
was becoming increasingly hard to find important documents.

The menu items have been slightly edited and a new stylesheet applied to the site. But none of the documents have been edited, not even for minor errors. The text appears on this site as obtained from the Internet Archive.

The period covered by the archive encompassed the campaign for HIV medicines, the civil disobedience campaigns, the Competition Commission complaints, the 2008 xenophobic violence and the PMTCT, Khayelitsha health workers and Matthias Rath court cases.

Yanga Janet out on bail

Yanga Janet was released on bail for R500 last week. The case will be heard today (2 September 2008) outside the Khayelitsha Regional Court. TAC will be picketing outside the court to demand that justice is served.

On 8 April 2008, TAC filed an urgent application at the Cape High Court for protection against Yanga Janet who had been intimidating and threatening TAC members in Harare Khayelitsha. Janet had been one of the four accused in the Nandipha Makeke rape and murder case, but the charges against him were dismissed because of a lack of evidence. He was arrested on 15 May 2008 on charges of murder, attempted murder and intimidation. For more on the Nandipha Makeke case follow this link.
