Special Report Transcript Episode 85, Section 4, Time 45:10

Fourteen years ago three Eastern Cape activists known as the Pebco three were killed at a deserted former police station near Cradock. It is one of the most gruesome we have heard in two years of amnesty applications. This week, Joe Mamasela, self confessed multiple murderer and ex askari from Vlakplaas gave his version of events. He is the only one involved in the killing of the Pebco three who has not applied for amnesty because he has turned state witness against the other applicants. Mamasela first gave his sensational version of the murders at Post Chalmers on this programme on April 1996. His story differs from all the other amnesty applicants. It probably means that if the Amnesty Committee accepts his version none of the other policemen will receive amnesty. But is Joe Mamasela telling the truth? Let’s start right at the beginning of this terrible tale.
