POET and journalist Antije Krog and stage director John Kani, were awarded the Hiroshima Prize in Stockholm on Sunday for their contributions to peace. The million kronor (about R700000) prize, to be shared by the two, was handed over at a ceremony at Stockholm’s Soeder theatre. Krog published a compilation of articles on the work of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Kani, a director at Johannesburg’s Market Theatre, allowed blacks into the theatre despite an official ban under apartheid. The Hiroshima Prize was set up 10 years ago following the death of author Edita Morris.
