Join Beverley Roos-Muller for the launch of her new book Hunting the Seven: How the Gugulethu Seven Assassins Were Exposed at The Book Lounge (13 June)
 More about the book!

Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Book Lounge invite you to the launch of Hunting the Seven: How the Gugulethu Seven Assassins Were Exposed by Beverley Roos-Muller.

Roos-Muller will be in conversation with Tony Weaver and Chris Bateman.

In 1986, seven young men were shot and killed by police in Gugulethu in Cape Town. The nation was told they were a ‘terrorist’ MK cell, which was plotting an attack on a police unit. An inquest followed, then a dramatic trial in 1987 and another inquest in 1989. Finally, the fact that Eugene de Kock’s Vlakplaas unit plotted and drove the operation was revealed at the Truth and Reconciliation ten years after the murders, but Vlakplaas’s real agenda remained shrouded in mystery.

In Hunting the Seven, Beverley Roos-Muller tells the story of the Gugulethu Seven and the hunt for the truth of their deaths.
