Dr. Death Takes a Holiday
Tim Kingston has an interesting piece on ZNet on life in post-apartheid Western Cape. But what caught my eye was this:
The white community's conservatism is indicated by a speaking invitation from the Chamber of Commerce to Dr. Wouter Basson, better known as "Dr. Death" for allegedly masterminding a chemical and poison warfare campaign against Anti Apartheid Activists.
Why anyone would invite Basson to speak to them (unless they're unreconstructed racists) is beyond me. This is like inviting Dr. Mengele to give a talk in Buenos Aires, circa 1957. Wonder what Basson's speaking fee is. posted by daudi • link: Friday, May 14, 2004
