Special Report Transcript Episode 2, Section 10, Time 19:37

And the father of the late Anton … sorry, Anton was shot and killed at approximately 20 hours 30 on the 12th September, and he was about to enter his home at 7 Sanderberg Street, Windhoek, Namibia. There is no doubt that the death of Anton resulted from a politically motivated assassination. // Lubowski was deeply resented in the white establishment in South Africa and Namibia. Son of an Afrikaner mother of proud Van der Merwe stock, and a German speaking Namibian father, he had a model youth: the prestigious Paul Roos Gymnasium, the University of Stellenbosch, a good rugby player, an officer in the South African Citizen Force, an advocate at the Namibian Bar. He became a powerful symbol of young whites embracing liberation and democracy in Namibia and South Africa. Shortly after he publicly joined SWAPO in 1984, state president PW Botha informed him that he was dishonourably discharged from the South African Defence Force. Lubowski became the target of harassment, attacks, and detention without trial.
