Thembekile Molaudzi Update

Earlier this month Wits Justice Project client Thembekile Molaudzi was released from prison after his conviction for murder and robbery was reversed by the Constitutional Court of South Africa. Molaudzi served eleven years of a life sentence, during which time he was subjected to torture and forced into solitary confinement.

See below for recent new stories and podcasts featuring Molaudzi and Carolyn Raphaely, the journalist who investigated his case and helped prove his innocence.
