Special Report Transcript Episode 51, Section 3, Time 16:19

There isn’t anything to hide about these camps. There ought not to be the notion of a dark cloud as the Commissioner was saying, because you have a sense that there was something that was hidden, that we should be ashamed of, that needs to come out during these hearings. The overwhelming majority of the South Africans who joined Umkhonto we Sizwe, whether they went out of the country or stayed in the country were not traitors. They were not traitors, they didn’t sell out, they didn’t become subject to investigations, didn’t become subject to abuses either, of being beaten and tortured.

Notes: Thabo Mbeki (TRC and Political Parties May 1997
