MTHETHWA, Mthiyeni Joseph
An IFP supporter who was shot and injured on 8 September 1991 in Tokoza, Transvaal, just days before the signing of the National Peace Accord. Mr Mthethwa was shot when about 300 members of the Hostel-dwellers` Association on their way to a peace meeting in Tokoza, Tvl, were sprayed with AK47 gunfire by three gunmen. At least 23 people died in the attack. The Goldstone Commission later discovered the attack was planned and carried out by a police informer operating in a self-defence unit in Phola Park. One of the perpetrators who is currently serving a life sentence for the attack has applied for amnesty. See Tokoza attacks.
