But the ANC is not denying that there were what they called ‘excesses’ in their camps, in fact a lot of what we know of the violations in these camps come from documentation given to the Truth Commission by the ANC and from several commissions of inquiry the ANC itself had appointed. The ANC gave a list of 37 people executed by order of military tribunal. Internal ANC reports also chronicled the cruel beatings and torture in some of the camps. Many, probably most of the people suspected by the ANC were informers, but some were completely innocent. One such a person was Doctor Pallo Jordan, Minister of the Environment now, who was detained for six weeks by Mbokodo, probably because he dared criticize their brutal methods. And then there was the case of Muziwakhe Ngwenya, popularly known as Thami Zulu or TZ. TZ was a senior MK commander when Mbokodo suspected him of being an informer. His friends in MK and his family deny this vehemently, but to this day the accusation lingers. After a long period of detention in Zambia he died. The ANC gave three reasons for his death: he had AIDS, he had TB and he was poisoned by unknown persons.
