Candice Mama was just eight months old when her father Gelnak Masilo Mama, one of the "Nelspruit Five" was killed in 1992.
Eugene de Kock, who was convicted for his death, is still hoping to be granted parole and in August this year it was decided that he would have to wait another year before his application for parole will be reconsidered, to allow the families of his victims to be consulted.
Now 23, Candice and her family visited De Kock in prison last week and she has now said that he should be granted parole. She felt that he showed genuine remorse and that "his apology came from his soul."
Mama said that he was also a victim of apartheid and had been brainwashed from a young age to believe what he did was right.
She told John Webb, standing in for Kieno Kammies, that the former Vlakplaas commander went into detail of what he did, even though this was not a parole hearing and that he wasn't required to do so, and this is what makes her believe that he has been rehabilitated.
