Silverton Siege Story
It all begins with the arrest of the nationalist leader or we can say that the arrest of Nelson Mandela people begin to protest because the nationalist leader was alleged to be released after 10 years of imprisonment but wasn’t released even after 16 years of imprisonment so people started a protest against the govt, three MK solders (a political-military fraction, co-founded by solon, to fight the South African government if they reply peaceful demonstration against Africans with violence. They were also referred to as Umkhonto we Sizwe.)
There was a high-profile mission to sabotage a petroleum depot, a trio of Umkhonto we Sizwe liberation fighters realizes they need been found, and police are waiting at the petrol pump for them. A vicious and dangerous chase begins and they took shelter inside a bank named Volkskas Bank, there have been a complete of 25 people at the bank they became captative for the trio -Stephen “Fanie” Mafoko, Wilfred Madela, and Humphrey Makhubo. They demanded a series of things, the primary was to release Nelson Mandela from prison, second on the list was an oversized sum of cash, safe passage to flee, and a gathering with heads of state. After six hours of standoff police finally began to mobilize they stormed the bank and fired, killing the trio and a pair of civilians were also caught within the crossfire. From my perspective, this story will inspire today’s youth to believe that everybody can change the planet all it takes is to require the initiative, and also the result is obtained.
