56 arrested for ministers hostage

 56 people belonging to the Liberation Struggle War Veterans are facing charges of kidnapping after they held ministers Thandi Modise and Mondi Gungubele along with Thabang Makwetla, hostage for over three hours at the St George’s Hotel in Centurion.

A heavy contingent of special task force members and police was deployed after news got out. The war veterans had been protesting against the government’s failure to pay them reparations.

Scores of law enforcement officials swarmed the St George's Conference Centre in Irene after a meeting between military veterans and the defence minister turned into a hostile standoff.

When negotiation attempts failed, Special Forces stormed the room. With police firing tear gas, escorting the two Cabinet ministers and deputy minister to safety.
