MBATHA, Abel Mgedi


Was killed with his father-in-law in Zonkiziswe, Katlehong, Transvaal, on 23 May 1993. Their charred bodies were found in the boot of their car the next day. The incident occurred after an ANC march past a Tokoza hostel on 22 May 1993 led to a dramatic escalation of political violence on the East Rand, leaving at least eighty people dead. Mr Mbatha and his father-in-law were allegedly killed because they were Zulu-speaking and their attackers therefore assumed that they were IFP supporters.

Sorry, no references to this term could be found in the hearing transcripts.
