Someone to Blame: The Ahmed Timol Inquest

Channel: SABC3
TX Time: 19h30
Genre: Documentary, History

Covers the 2017 inquest into the death of Ahmed Timol, the 29-year-old Roodepoort school teacher and political activist who was said to have committed suicide by jumping out of the 10th floor of the former John Vorster Square Police Station on 27 October, 1971.

The original inquest in 1972 returned a verdict that there was no living person responsible for his death, despite overwhelming evidence of gruesome torture. Loved ones did not believe Timol had jumped: they believed he was either tortured to death and then thrown from the window, or pushed.

Imtiaz Ahmed Cajee, Ahmed Timol's nephew, made it his personal quest to find those responsible for his beloved uncle's death.

Season 2 of the series returns with a cast that looks slightly different: two new "Bashers" with fresh perspectives join the fray as the team continues their search for the perfect South African wedding.
