The final clause of the Interim Constitution of South Africa, 1993 (Act 200 of 1993) would precipitate, in the words of Antjie Krog (2002, vi), 'perpetrator and victim facing each other to negotiate a common future'. It is this clause that presented the hope that the 'divisions and strife of the past', as well as a ?legacy of hatred, fear, guilt and revenge' could now 'be addressed on the basis that there is a need for understanding but not for vengeance, a need for reparation but not for retaliation, a need for ubuntu but not for victimization'.
