Zastron road ambush

Several APLA members ambushed a vehicle in which four people were travelling from Zastron to Sterkspruit on 18 March 1992. The driver of the vehicle was shot dead and one other passenger sustained severe gunshot injuries. The remaining two passengers escaped the ambush unhurt and were able to flee from the scene. The Commission accepted that the PAC and APLA were engaged in the armed struggle and regarded all whites as supporters of the government, and that the ambush had been associated with a political objective. One APLA member was granted amnesty.
