MAPONYA, Japie Kereng (aka `Geeletjie`)


Was abducted from Krugersdorp, Transvaal, during September 1985 by Vlakplaas operatives on the instructions of the West Rand Security Branch. He was taken to Vlakplaas and interrogated and assaulted in an effort to extract information about the activities of his brother, MK operative Odirile Maponya, aka `Mainstay`. Following his refusal to co-operate, he was killed and buried on the Swazi side of the border. Nine Security Branch operatives, including the divisional commander of West Rand and the commander of Vlakplaas, applied for amnesty. Three applications were refused and six granted (AC/2001/272 and AM/2001/279).
