PERMANENT REMOVAL (article first published : 2004-07-25)

Adams Campus Bookshop and Wits University Press recently launched Permanent Removal: who killed the Cradock Four? written by Chris Nicholson, a Durban judge and the first director of the Durban branch of the Legal Resources Centre .

“Ten years into South Africa’s democracy we need to find the answers to some hard questions,” reads the publicity notes. “Did the negotiations that led to the new South Africa include an agreement that the masterminds of murder would be immune from prosecution? Have these men refused to confess their deeds and shame in the certain knowledge that they will not be punished for their crimes?

“Will the families of Matthew Goniwe, Fort Catala, Sparrow Mkonto and Sicelo Mhlauli - as well as many others – ever know for certain who authorised the murders of their loved ones?”

Permanent Removal is the fascinating story of the search for the people ultimately responsible for the deaths of the Cradock Four. Based on factual documentation and court records, it recounts the investigations and political intrigue around the murders.

It also demonstrates how this notorius case exposed the inner workings of the State Security Council, even if the masterminds continue to remain immune from prosecution in South Africa’s fledgling democracy.

Permanent Removal is published by Wits University Press and priced at R170.
