Pre – Mexican Events 1983

On the 7th 0f the 7th month 1983 I stepped into a hell hole called 7 SAI.  A basic training infantry camp in Phalaborwa. This was a very hard place and the training grounds called Lataba Ranch was extremely tough. To the extent that I saw fellow soldiers rather shoot themselves or cut their wrists in order not to go back to Lataba.

I would not say this is what made the Mexican follow the road he did, but it most definitely had an influence on his life.

This article shows the prevailing atmosphere on the Southern tip of Africa at the time.  BBC ON THIS DAY
