Special Report Transcript Episode 17, Section 5, Time 28:39
Steyn was worried that the two gang members would escape from custody, as had happened in the past and so would never be brought to justice. // I told the Defence Force people that they should shoot and if there were any queries about the deaths they should just say that they had died on their way to hospital; that they had died from the wounds sustained earlier during the shooting. At one of the turnoff roads leading to the plantations in the bushes I told the driver to turn off into the bush. After a while I told them to stop and we jumped off from the bakkie, lifted the flap and I told the injured people to get off. Before they could make any attempt to get off the two Defence Force members grabbed each of the injured by the feet and just dragged them off from the bakkie. They landed on the ground and the two Defence Force members armed with R4 rifles, of their own accord and initiative, aimed at the two deceased and injured people. The Defence Force members were very clumsy as far as their fire arms were concerned. They certainly didn’t seem to be very familiar with the rifles.
