Description DM2004011551:SAED:SOCIAL:POLITICS:PERSONALITY:APRTHEID:MAR1958 - People flee From Their Homes - Police Sergeant Jan va Rooyen. A Drum special reporter went to Zeerust to get the facts behind the reports of full jails, rioting and hut burning in Groot Marico Bushveld Reserve, near Zerust. Golden City Post has told already how two of its reporters were handed over by the police to a tribal mob who beat them up, and, also of eye witness reports of how four people, including a ten year old, were sten-gunned to death. Now Drum demands, with post, a full official inquiry into happenings in the area. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
