Alfred Manyanyata Sepepe, South Africa
2016 in Johannesburg
Alfred Sepepe became the beacon of hope for all those who have suffered health problems as a result of South Africa's nuclear industry. Together with the NGO "Earthlife Africa Johannesburg" he persuaded many of the 500 ex-pelindaba workers with suspicious symptoms to have themselves examined. He formulated requests, repeatedly alarmed the public and resisted attempts at bribery. For this he received a "special recognition".
