Gazankulu hand grenade attack

On 28 March 1986, foreign soldiers, working under the auspices of the SADF, threw hand grenades into a packed shebeen in Lulekani, Gazankulu, causing an unknown number of deaths and injuries. The Mozambican and Angolan soldiers were allegedly deployed by the SADF to destroy youth activists. The presence of the soldiers in the area caused considerable tension as they were perceived by youth activists to be agents of the state. Youths gathered in the shebeen were strategising about the removal of the foreign mercenaries from the area when the attack took place.
