With Lindiwe Jnr blown into the spirit at the gas explosion, Lindiwe Snr, wakes up in hospital and is totally out of touch with the New South Africa. The last thing she remembered was being pregnant with Lindiwe Jnr in 1991 and now she is in 2010. She does not know what MNET is, nor does she know what a mobile phone is. Of even greater importance, she does not know that Nelson Mandela had been released from prison. Her last memory was that F.W. de Klerk was President of the Apartheid regime controlling South Africa. She also knows little about Jacob Zuma, the current President of South Africa, after the ANC ruling party recalled Thabo Mbeki.
Meanwhile, Pieter had become hysterical now that he had lost Lindiwe Jnr, and earlier, Lindiwe Snr, who died giving birth to their daughter.
10 May 1994 – Nelson Mandela is inaugurated as the first democratically-elected President of South Africa. Immediately, there are threats against his life. Mandela informs US President Bill Clinton of his opposition to the death penalty, which was suspended in South Africa in February 1990 and abolished on 6 June 1995. Ironically, on the same day that Mandela was inaugurated as President, John Wayne Gacy was put to death in the US by lethal injection for the murder of 33 young men and boys.
In his mind, Mandela works through the Freedom Charter, the foundation of the African National Congress movement.
After a night of love-making, Lindiwe reveals more about her trip to the future and informs Pieter that Nelson Mandela will be SA’s first democratically elected President in 1994. She also mentions that the black homelands including Transkei, Ciskei and Zululand, will be incorporated into the New South Africa. Further, she announces with pride that the Springboks will win the 1995 Rugby World Cup final against New Zealand in Johannesburg. On the down side, SACP Secretary-General Chris Hani gets assassinated in April 1993, and his death plunges the country to the brink of civil war. There is the land issue, as in who are the real owners of the land and the minerals that it possesses.
Before the trio can leave the coffee shop, government security officials arrive on a mission to deport Louise Burrell. While her paperwork is in order, clearly her trip to the island was not good news to all. Eventually, after a shouting match scene in front of patrons, Louise is taken away by the security men. Lindiwe watches on, but as a black girl in Apartheid SA, there is little that she can do, even with Lieutenant Pieter Erasmus next to her. Pieter and Lindiwe agree to meet at 5pm for further talks. Neither are actually serious about the meeting. Both are on a mission to get to Albertina Buthelezi as soon as possible. With Louise gone, Pieter has to settle the ladies bill for coffee and cake, as Lindiwe cannot afford too.
General du Toit heads off in a huff at not having succeeded in getting information out of Pieter Erasmus. Then another, more liberal, man appears. Professor J.G. Strijdom. His mother was a big fan of the former South African Prime Minister, by the same name. While Strijdom is actually sent to get information out of Pieter, it turns out the other way around. Pieter learns that Mandela is back on the island, and that the Professor is just as cautious of his own colleagues, as he is. The Professor feels that Apartheid has another 10 years to go before it crumbles, but Pieter knows that is simply too long to wait. Until government get the answers that they are looking for, the ‘Looking Glass’ project will continue in secret at a place not far from the original spot at the Natal border.
The puppet show was good. Police Commissioner Lawrence Mathibe was answering questions and telling Advocate Dali Mhlaba exactly what he wanted to hear.
Pieter realised that he needed a fairy godmother to save him. Mathibe mentions that Pieter had given the order to the cops to open fire on the strikers. Outside in the streets, the cry of ‘One settler, one bullet’ changes to ‘one settler, two bullets’.
The next day, Pieter goes to Mamelodi East for the funeral of Lindiwe Buthelezi Snr, who succumbed to her wounds after being shot by Pieter in the North-West. He is stopped at the gate of the cemetery and told by the security guard that the Buthelezi family do not want him at graveside.
While the blacks at the gate chant racist slogans at him, he hears his father’s voice in his head. ‘The blacks do not have brains. They just know how to steal and destroy.”
