The man most feared by the inhabitants of the Township”¦.The assaults, arson and murders actually started from the time he took an active part in the management of the Evaton bus boycott, and although he remains in the background, he is in charge of the gangs responsible for assaults, arson and murder and is the most shrewd of ringleaders.
