Special Report Transcript Episode 55, Section 3, Time 10:27

Hendrik Jacobus Steyn, a former detective Warrant Officer in the Empangeni murder and robbery squad was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment for the murder of Michael Mthethwa and Samuel Msweli in 1992. The two ANC members were injured in a shootout with security forces at this house in the Sekulu reserve near Empangeni. On his way to the scene of the shooting Hendrik Steyn came across the bakkie in which the two injured men were being taken to hospital. Steyn rerouted the vehicle to a secluded spot. The injured men were dragged from the bakkie and Steyn shot them. He said he killed them because he believed that the normal legal process would not have deterred them from continuing the struggle.
