In 1980s and 1990s, Apartheid was entering its twilight in South Africa but a state of low density civil war existed in the province of KwaZulu-Natal between the African National Congress/United Democratic Front and Inkatha.

The motivation factors discussed in this paper are Political Propaganda, Coercion, and Opportunistic Violence.
