Special Report Transcript Episode 79, Section 3, Time 32:12
Last year, former Mandela United Football coach and the convicted killer of Stompie Seipei, Jerry Richardson created a sensation when he confessed to being a police spy at the first round of the Truth Commission hearings. This week the security policemen confirmed this, but said Richardson was the only informer they had in the Mandela household. Throughout the two days of the police testimony the families of the disappeared Soweto youngster, Lolo Sono sat in the audience. So too did the mother of Stompie Seipei. This time they were joined by the family of murdered askari, Johannes Themba Mabotha, who it was claimed was Winnie’s lover. The former commander of Vlakplaas, Eugene de Kock, who described Winnie as a thorn in the flesh of the security forces gave a chilling account of how he later murdered her alleged lover. He told the TRC Themba Mabotha had been handed over to Vlakplaas by this man, former police colonel, Jan Potgieter.
