Bush War Atrocities

08 February 2013, 09:01

The information I provided in the above 2 previous  articles is only the iceberg of the reality and brute numbers of atrocities that took place during the Bush war era.  If some do not like the article then I suggest they do not read it.  Much of the information is taken off Google:   14th “July 1998:  “San soldiers tell TRC of SADF Atrocities.”

1)       2 members of the SADF gave evidence on alleged atrocities committed against members of the San community by white soldiers in the Northern region of Namibia in December 1979.

2)    Sergeant xyz   and corporal  abc  members of the !XU and Khwe clans who lived in a tent settlement in Schmidtsdrift near Kimberley were members of the SADF when the atrocities took place

3)     The TRC investigation unit head said the men were invited to give evidence to the TRC about the alleged killing of four San Soldiers by White soldiers.

4)    They were also called to answer questions about alleged cases of severe beatings  and other abuses against several members of 31 Battalion.

5)    A third aspect about which they were asked to answer was the alleged coercion of members of the KU and KHWE  communities to participate in the SADF operations in Angola and Caprivi

This particular google site, given above,  bears dozens of references to SADF atrocities.

Politics of ideology or realism

I have been an avid follower of the University Revolutions taking place all over South Africa. However the concern for me came after the defacing of the statues and protests in institutions became a monthly event. Read more...
