The Hefer Commission
Mac Maharaj now says that Bulelani Ngcuka had, "in all probability" been an apartheid spy. But that's not what he was saying in September. Then he unequivocally backed a report in City Press which suggested that Ngcuka was an Apartheid spy.

It now seems fairly certain that neither Maharaj nor Schaik ever had clear evidence to back up their claims. So, either they panicked when rumours started circulating that Ngcuka was investigating them or (as BBC analyst Carolyn Dempster has argued) this is part of a bigger internal struggle in the ANC. If this later theory is true then the fallout from the investigation could have some very far reaching consequences..
