16 July 1990
The African National Congress (ANC) sent a report on police violence to President F. W. de Klerk and demanded an end to "the shocking inhumanity" of police action in rural areas. The report was based on about 50 statements to lawyers by victims of police action in the farming towns of Ashton, Montague and Robertson. ANC leader Walter Sisulu had already accused the Government of failing to restrain the police after young activist Meshack Kunene was shot dead on 30 June in the Alexandra Township near Johannesburg.
