Who sent the bomb?[edit]

The article stated that the letter bomb was sent to him by SWAPO cadres. The SA government is usually blamed. Which is correct?203.184.41.226 (talk) 23:52, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Don't see evidence presented for neither. So how do we know it was SA.GOV? Or is this simply assumed for convenience sake. --105.4.118.51 (talk) 20:10, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
Nobody knows, no one came forward at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (South Africa) to claim responsibility. It is assumed that the Apartheid govt was responsible because their operatives were responsible for many similar attacks, see Ruth First for example.Wayne Jayes (talk) 08:38, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

The article refers to "1973...during the height of apartheid repression". However there was little repression in 1963, as there was little militancy in the early 1970's. The wording is also POV and unencyclopaedic. I suggest the deletion of the words "during the height of apartheid repression".203.184.41.226 (talk) 23:54, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Publications[edit]

User:105.224.243.88 added a second instance of Redeeming my past this time by a different publisher. What is the purpose of this? My gut-feel is to remove the second publication , I don't see what value it adds to the article. Wayne Jayes (talk) 15:23, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
