Special Report Transcript Episode 30, Section 1, Time 00:22
‘Vlakplaas’ is a new word in the South African vocabulary symbolizing evil. This week the Truth Commission was told that this former police hit squad also had a hand in a cold blooded execution in Cape Town. We bring you a full background report on the killing of the Gugulethu Seven and on the dramatic and bloody days six months before when 28 people were killed after a UDF march to Pollsmoor Prison. We introduce you to a rather mysterious man who spread South Africa’s terror far across our borders, Peter Casselton. And we go to Tembisa east of Johannesburg for stories of political gangsters and hostels full of dark secrets. Satirist Peter Dirk Uys will introduce you to a few familiar characters later in the show. But we start tonight’s programme in Cape Town.
