Reprint of an article "S. African: Westchester should continue sanctions" by Ed Tagliaferri. The article says after a 17-year exile from her country, Nomazizi Sokudela returned home to South Africa in June; there, she saw suffering continuing under the country's policy of racial segregation and was shot at by a white vigilante group; even though the government is taking steps toward change, the nightmare of apartheid remains, she said. The article says she was one of several speakers before the board’s Committee on the Budget and Appropriations to support proposed changes in how the county treats banks that hold loans in South Africa. The article includes a quote by Donna Katzin of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR). The article discusses the African National Congress (ANC), Citibank, the Westchester legislature, Ernest Davis, and Herman Keith.
