Special Report Transcript Episode 41, Section 4, Time 12:29

I see my case as a political one. It is because of the meetings we were attending and the decisions taken there. Yes, I played a role because we were told that we should defend ourselves should we be attacked. // The instructions he gave you, as I understand them and as you wrote out in your application, was to patrol the location to protect the residents against any threats. You were there to protect, not to attack, not to kill. // It was necessary because at that time we regarded the white people as our enemies. // Do you remember the evidence that was led at the trial? // Yes, I do remember. // A red bakkie cut off the white Mazda and it came to a stop. Out of the bakkie three people climbed: yourself, accused number two and another. Do you remember that evidence? // Yes sir. // That you immediately began hitting the vehicle and ordered the people in it to climb out. // Yes sir. // And then assaulted them. // No, I was not in that van.
