Just before the multi-party negotiations could resume in April 1993, violence once again took place that greatly affected the negotiations and the CODESA talks. On the 10th of April 1993, Chris Hani, an important leader of the ANC and the South African Communist Party (SACP), was murdered outside of his home.
