Today the Sunday Times prints on its front page the full list of victims of the riots that shook SA a year ago this week. We list name, place and cause of death, according to information provided by the police.  And we ask the question too, where is the justice for these victims — there have been no convictions in 199 deaths in KwaZulu-Natal listed as murder.  ..
