There will be a unique conference as part of the South African National Arts Festival's Think!Fest this year.
The conference is bringing together ex-concripts, ex-liberation fighters, informal township fighters, family who lost loved ones as well as others affected by the wars of the Apartheid era. There are also offerings from the arts and I will be talking about my bicycle journey.
With a national debate that seems increasingly polarised, this conference is going a long way towards contributing to a more constructive national dialogue.
Ex-combatants are again putting themselves on the front line, but this time in the service of peace.
