Brigadier Jan van der Hofen has denied any complicity in the murder and said at the Harms Commission that he read about the murder in the newspaper. // Evidence was recently led in the Eugene de Kock case that he and his men killed the fourth member of the death squad. Brian Ngqulunga was shot dead in July 1990, because he wanted to confess to the Harms Commission. As more evidence emerged about police death squads, Police Commissioner George Fivaz reopened the Mxenge investigation last year. Three people have already confessed to the killing, but now, the leader of the squad, warrant officer Joe Mamasela has also decided to talk. Three weeks ago Mamasela admitted on this programme that he and his colleagues at Vlakplaas murdered anti-apartheid activists during the eighties.
