Special Report Transcript Episode 26, Section 3, Time 21:23

When I moved into the hall and saw the five gentlemen for the first time and when Capt Hechter stood up and stretched out his hand I had ambivalent feelings. The first feeling was one of uncertainty, of hesitation, but also of deep scepticism for the simple reason that the last time I think when Capt Hechter and I met he had a gun in his hand pointed at my forehead. Doors were broken down, that’s how he, Capt Loodts and others gained entrance. At the same time, because of my deep felt belief as a Christian, but because also of the policy of the government of national unity - they made emphasis on reconciliation and building a new nation - my second sentiment immediately said to me straight out your hand and meet Capt Hechter.
