RECONCILIATION: Swapo & MK Graves, Border War, Internal Struggle and the Draft.


ON THIS day of National Reconciliation, let me be the first one to extend my apologies to all those soldiers on both sides who died defending the indefensible, who pursued violence and conflict in the expectation that a war could be waged and won. To all those SWAPO and MK fighters who died needlessly, and all the SADF men who were buried at battlegrounds like Cuito Carnivale in Angola, my condolances and apologies for not being more outspoken about War.

 

MAY THE WOUNDED HEAL, THE FALLEN REST IN PEACE, AND MAY PEACE PREVAIL OVER ALL HUMANITY.
