Special Report Transcript Episode 4, Section 1, Time 00:17

Nightmares of the past came back to haunt the Truth Commission this week and several world known personalities, such as Winnie Mandela and Robert McBride. Sitting in Durban the Truth Commission hearings reminded South Africans that atrocities and human rights violations were not the monopoly of the apartheid state. KwaZulu-Natal’s low intensity civil war was reflected day after day. Griffiths Mxenge was one of KwaZulu-Natal’s most prominent legal minds in the struggle for democracy. He was brutally murdered in his home in 1981 and his wife Victoria four years later. Tonight, the special report will bring you the disturbing confessions of his murderers. They have never been charged. But the hearings in Durban also covered human rights violations in the Free State. Later on we listen to the mother of Parys child activist, Stompie Seipei, who was tortured and killed by members of Winnie Mandela’s United Football Club. We start tonight’s report with the bomb attack on Durban’s Parade Hotel.
