BOPAPE, Maisha ‘Stanza’ Johannes

Age 27

A Mamelodi Civic Association committee member who died while being subjected to electric shock torture at John Vorster Square, Johannesburg, on 12 June 1988. Mr Bopape’s body was allegedly subsequently thrown into the crocodile-infested Komati River at Komatipoort. Seven Witwatersrand Security Branch operatives, including the divisional commander, applied for amnesty for the incident and the subsequent cover- up. The head of Security Branch Headquarters and two members of the Eastern Transvaal Security Branch, including the divisional commander, sought amnesty for their role in the cover-up. All applicants were granted amnesty (AC/2000/059).
