This pamphlet presents first hand accounts by five of the mutineers in the 1984 mutiny in the camps of Umkhonto we Sizwe in Angola and Tanzania. It complements the materials presented in Searchlight South Africa on the same topics. It details the brutal suppression of the rank and file mutineers, under the guidance of security sections within the ANC, trained in Moscow and the GDR, responsible directly to the South African Communist Party. The savage regime in the ANC's "rehabilitation centres" is described in full. The involvement of ANC/SACP "heroes" such as Hani, Slovo and Tambo is made clear.
