The 4th annual Carlos Cardoso Memorial Lecture was held on November 10 by Bheki Makhubu from Swaziland. Cardoso was a Wits student deported to Mozambique in 1974 because of his support for the Frelimo Government. He became a journalist, but while investigating a massive political and financial fraud, he was assassinated in the streets of Maputo on 22 November 2000. Makhubu, a journalist for 27 years, is a columnist and Editor-in-Chief of The Nation. He was jailed in March 2014 on charges of contempt of court following the publication of articles criticising the judicial system.
