More Dirty Tricks Revealed
Mayibuye, Vol. 6, no. 3, July 1995
Former Stratcom operative Paul Erasmus revealed in the Mail and Guardian how Stratcom - the State Security Council arm which specialised in intelligence gathering and dirty tricks - had used propaganda, front companies, surrogate organisations, assassination, theft, blackmail, subversion and a "host of other activities" - to strengthen the NP in negotiations and diminish the ANC's capacity to win a non-racial election. Among their tactics were concerted campaigns to undermine prominent democratic leaders, including Women's League president Winnie Mandela.
The revelations confirm claims made by the ANC since its unbanning, and point to the direct involvement of senior NP members.
