Names: Nkabinde, Sifiso
Born: 1960, Richmond, KwaZulu-Natal
Died: 23 January 1999
In summary: folitical Activist, Provincial Legislator and Warlord.
In 1994, after South Africa's first democratic election, Nkabinde was elected as one of the ANC's provincial legislators. In an astonishing move during one of the legislature's debates he openly admitted to being a warlord, but asserted that, he ââ¦was never the one who caused violence and would not apoligise if I have defended people against their enemyâ¦ I will never sacrifice my peopleâ . Following a string of murder charges against him in 1997, Nkabinde was finally arrested. He was later acquitted on the grounds that there was not enough evidence to link him directly to the 18 murders alleged committed by members of his defence unit. The acquittal came as a shock to those who allegedly witnessed his part in the killings in April 1994.
