Former presidents Obasanjo and Mbeki have arguably made the most important contribution to Africa in the 21st Century by promoting peace, democracy, regional integration and pan-Africanism.
Two striking images - from the 1940s and the 1960s - help reveal the rich but still emerging history of street photography in the country.
It seems that former president FW De Klerk continues to find it hard to accept that apartheid was a crime against humanity.
The Timol ruling will not only have implications for crimes under apartheid, but also put the focus on torture within the South African Police Service.
In South Africa's criminal justice system post-1994, the Timol case is the first to enact what can be properly understood as restorative justice.
Inquests into atrocities committed under apartheid are important because many South Africans are beginning to question whether justice was done under the country's truth and reconciliation process.
Will the Timol case create the necessary political will to open dozens more inquests into apartheid deaths? Maybe, but government machinery has proven to be rusty and extremely slow.
