ANC Statement on Anniversary of Death of Steve Biko
The African National Congress Department of Information and
13 September 1995
This year marks the 18th anniversary of Steve Biko's death in
detention. The apartheid leaders, who are responsible for the death
and disappearances of many of our people, must start now to account
for the destruction which they have caused to the past.
Justice in South Africa was never accessible to the majority of
our people in this country. Steve Bantu Biko, who led the students
movement on 70, was brutally murdered by the racist regime of the
time for his political stand and convictions.
The ANC strongly reiterates that never and never again shall
people of his country be subjected to humiliation, detention
without trial, Torture or state sponsored murder.
The ANC calls on those who are responsible for crimes
perpetrated under the apartheid regime to take full responsibility
of their past actions and comply with the Truth Commission. The
democratically elected government of this country must ensure that
prisoners are fully protected by the Constitution.
