A Brief Background story behind the 'Pen Gun' given to Oliver Tambo:

Around 2015, Ronnie Kasril's, a former senior MK operative and  Minister of Intelligence, donated to Liliesleaf Farm Heritage Site a 'Pen Gun' given to Oliver Tambo in the mid 1980's. Oliver Tambo, on his return from exile at the beginning of the 1990's, gave the 'Pen Gun', to Ronnie Kasril's, for safe keeping. Oliver Tambo was at the time President of the ANC. The 'Pen Gun', was given to him, to protect himself from would be assassins.

Initially, Liliesleaf was not sure whether the 'Pen Gun' was given to Oliver Tambo by either the Cubans or the East Germans. Following research undertaken by Liliesleaf, it became apparent that the 'Pen Gun' was given to Oliver Tambo by the East German's.\n\nApparently, the 'Pen Gun' was developed by the East German Secret Police, the Stasi.

Though the 'Pen Gun', could not kill, it would badly injure a would be assassin.

The 'Pen Gun' is kept safely stowed away at Lilliesleaf in the archives under lock and key and is not accessible to viewings by the public. The proud owner of the 'Pen Gun' will be given the exclusive right to inspect the 'Pen Gun' once a year at Lilliesleaf Museum.
