Unsolved SA political murders
Rick Turner: January 8 1978
The Durban academic and activist was shot through the window of his home and died in the arms of his 13-year-old daughter, Jann. Investigations by the police and the TRC failed to find his murderers, although it is suspected that BOSS agents were responsible.
Dulcie September: March 29 1988 September, an anti-apartheid activist, was shot five times in the face outside the ANC offices in Paris. While there was speculation that September may have been assassinated by agents of the apartheid state in collaboration with members of the French intelligence services, this has never been officially confirmed and her murder remains unsolved.
Anton Lubowski: September 12 1989
Namibian human rights advocate and antiapartheid activist Lubowski was killed by shots from an AK-47 outside his house in Windhoek. While an inquest into his death and the TRC both found evidence that his death was carried out by members of the apartheid hit squad known as the Civil Co-Operation Bureau, there is still speculation as to who pulled the trigger.
Professor Johan Heyns: November 5 1994 An outspoken NG Kerk leader and critic of apartheid, Heyns was killed by a rifle shot fired through the window of his home in Waterkloof, Pretoria, while playing cards with his wife and three grandchildren. It has long been suspected that he was killed by white extremists, but to date no one has been charged with his murder.
