Special Report on Alleged Cato Manor Police Hit Squad (Video)


Published on 6 Sep 2012 by enewschannel

KwaZulu-Natal, September 6 -- Members of the Organised Crime Unit based in Cato Manor are accused of murdering 28 people and planting guns on the bodies to cover up their crimes. In this special report, eNCA reporter Karyn Maughan examines why supporters of the unit say these men are loyal and dedicated policemen and why their accusers say they are nothing but cold-blooded killers.

Every South African has a strong opinion on crime and policing, but most know very little about the lives and experiences of the average cop in the 185,000-strong South African Police Service. This book is composed of excerpts from interviews with current and former members of the service who, for the first time, share their personal experiences of life behind the badge. The book covers a wide range of themes, including reasons for signing up, training, policing under apartheid and transformation after 1994. It describes the experiences of solving cases, using lethal force, being shot at and losing colleagues. Policemen and -women speak frankly about the psychological toll of police work and the impact on their family lives, and gives startling insights into ethics, torture, corruption, sex and power. There is a mantra among police: 'What happens on the shift stays on the shift.' In Behind the Badge, members break through this wall of silence and reveal the hidden life of the police.

The racketeering case against KwaZulu-Natal Hawks boss General Johan Booysen over his alleged heading of the so-called Cato Manor “death squad” is on shaky ground.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has missed a court deadline to file papers opposing Booysen’s legal challenge to his case, and the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid), which investigated Booysen, is of the view that there is “no case against him”.

The NPA has until June 28 to file papers. If it fails to do so, Booysen’s bid to have the racketeering charges against him set aside will succeed... Full news report in City Press

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
