Abstract

The struggle against the apartheid regime in South Africa gave rise to many heroes, whose symbol was Chris Hani, an underground fighter, a participant in the fighting in Zimbabwe, the chief of staff of the People's Army of the African National Congress — “Umkhonto we Sizwe” (MK), who was killed by a Polish emigrant on April 10 1993. But she also gave birth to traitors, or as they are now preferred to be called, collaborators. The article discusses their complicity with the apartheid regime, starting with state witnesses and ending with “askari”, as Africans who served in the colonial forces were called in East Africa, and in South Africa and Namibia — fighters of Umkhonto we Sizwe and the People's Liberation Army of Namibia, who went over to the side of the racist regime.
