The broad purpose of the special hearing on compulsory military service also known as the 'national service system' or 'conscription' 1 was expressed by Archbishop Tutu as follows:. The Commission is required by law to investigate all aspects of the conflicts of the past which gave rise to gross violations of human rights and to consider the perspectives and motives of the various participants within that conflict. We know that there have been different points of view about the sensitive issue of conscription and strong views expressed for and against the old SADF [South African Defence Force].

Others believed, equally vehemently, that the enemy was not out there; that the border was here in our midst, that certain things happened in waging wars that were thought to be totally necessary - things that must make us all hang our heads in shame. This issue, like so many in our apartheid past, divided our nation.
