Special Report Transcript Episode 6, Section 2, Time 01:41

May 1993, a year before the democratic elections in South Africa in Kimberley in the Northern Cape was the scene for an event that seems strangely out of step with the rest of the country. An ANC protest march, a hand grenade explosion, one dead, more than 40 people injured. The grenade was aimed at the Bophuthatswana consulate in Kimberley but it somehow detonated among the crowd. // Sipho Mbaqa and Nkosinathi Nkohla, leading ANC members, were both sentenced to 12 years for the attack. But this week former MK man, Walter Smiles stood before the Truth Commission and confessed that he threw the grenade.
