Example text

Like 'vultures'. And today they ail wash their hands in innocence and resist the realities of the Truth Commission. Yes, I stand by my murderer who let me and the old White South Africa sleep peacefully. Warmly, while 'those at the top' were again targeting the next 'permanent removal from society* for the vultures. there must have been someone out there who is still alive and who can give a face to 'the orders from above' for all the operations. This device is sometimes referred to as ‘scare quotes’, and warns readers that these are not Helena’s words but someone else’s, for example the wording of her second love or white South African leaders.

At least a murder victim rests. But she praises the leaders of ‘the people of the struggle’ for having the courage to stand by their resistance forces and honour their activities: at least their leaders have the guts to stand by their vultures, to recognize their sacrifices This shift in gears from Incident to Interpretation stages is significant. In the Incidents, Helena is not blaming anyone. At first she’s full of admiration for her lovers, then worried sick about their problems. In the Interpretations, however, she both condemns and praises on moral grounds, as she deals with honesty and dishonesty, and with guilt and innocence in the face of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

And all my girlfriends envied me. Then one day he said he was going on a 'trip'. Abruptly mutter the feared word 'trip' and drive off. The role of 'those at the top', the 'cliques' and 'our men' who simply had to carry out their bloody orders... like 'vultures'. And today they ail wash their hands in innocence and resist the realities of the Truth Commission. Yes, I stand by my murderer who let me and the old White South Africa sleep peacefully. Warmly, while 'those at the top' were again targeting the next 'permanent removal from society* for the vultures.
