The Tall Assassin / Die Lang Generaal

R300.00

General Hendrik van den Bergh, the former head of the Security Police and later head of the Bureau of State Security (BOSS), was for many, the most feared man in South Africa. He was brilliant and a noted personality among Cold War spies. Locally he reigned in terror and this book, by a former member of the Security Police, implicates him in a large number of murders, some sensational to this day.

They include:

  • The assassination of Dr HF Verwoerd (Prime Minister of RSA)
  • The death of Nic Diederichs (State President of RSA)
  • The death of Steve Biko (Black Consciousness leader)
  • The assassination of Anton Lubowski (Executive member of SWAPO)
  • The assassination of Prof. Johan Heyns (Dutch-Reformed theologian).

One of the most intriguing murders to which this book links Van den Bergh are the deaths of National Party candidate Dr Robert Smit and his wife in 1977. The author offers a compelling yet convincing explanation for the meaning of the mysterious words painted at the murder scene: “RAU TEM” and provides photographs to support his assertion.

“Shock revelations in fusion of truth and fiction.” – Rapport “This is a political thriller seldom found.” – Ockie Geyser (Professor, Univ. OFS) “It is a book I was unable to put down.” – Francoise Steynberg (Republican) “SA’s own Da Vinci Code.” – Graham Shelton (Former member of the UIIS) Alan D Elsdon joined the South African Police in 1973 and served in various positions. In 1978 he became a cryptographer in the Security Police and after a spate of bomb blasts in the Eastern Cape, became the key witness in the first ANC “Terrorist-trial” held in Bisho which led to convictions and imprisonment on Robben Island. In 1993 he left the police and continued his security career in the private sector. In 2008 he returned from a diamond mine in the heart of the DRC jungle, where he was involved in the logistics and security fields
