This was taken around 80's or 90's by a Dutch film crew.
I was a 'white' soldier which was part of 80 soldiers sent into dangerous places to keep peace just before 1994.
I saw victims of these on a daily basis. The international media only showed one side of a story which made you think all whites were bad. It was the contrary. Like any country, police force's or armies in the world had your bad individuals. It is estimated that 3000 people died with the necklace murders. Do a google search on what a necklace murder is. This murder word was coined by Winnie Mandela herself. In some cases the victims were forced to drink diesel or petrol and even their hands and feet were cut off so they could not run away. The apartheid government tried to keep the media away from murders like this because time and time again when camera's were present people showed frenzy behavior so just made things very difficult if you did come across a victim that you could save. (Human behaviour loves to show off in front of camera's) This did not stop the international media as there's nothing like a good story, and stopping the media just added to the propaganda of the apartheid government enforcing censorship. The ANC used this method, including killing civilians and children. Now they want to 'write' this out of the history books like it never happened. When it comes to 'the other' side of why and who the apartheid government fought the world remains ignorant. Either because it is 'head in the sand' mentality or things your minds cannot comprehend. Like they say. Ignorance is bliss. From my personal experience I always believed South Africa's problems are not black and white. It's cultural. Civilised vs unCivilised.
Afrikaners, the white minority that gave up their power position voluntarily to the majority are not in constant threat in South Africa with 50 murders a day. What does the world do? Total silence. The media ostracized these people to such a degree, that it is not pc to speak up for them. Just goes to show the bigotry and double standards of the 'black and white' world we live in today.
