Godfrey Motsepe’s evidence to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, 15 August 1996

Filed under: Peace — Tags: — Ag @ 6:38 pm

Manase’s late father, Godfrey Motsepe, gave testimony to the TRC about several attempts to assassinate him while he was working on behalf of the ANC in Brussels in the mid-late 1980s. I found his testimony moving and shocking. Moving, in that Mr Motsepe showed such dignity and compassion. Shocking, in that the Belgian authorities did little or nothing to protect his security and may even have colluded with the Apartheid security forces. It’s a very short and readable account. Godfrey Motsepe’s testimony to the TRC.
