An Interview with Mungo Poore

Sep 29, 2019 - Vincent Bezuidenhout

An interview with Mungo Poore is an image of the only known photograph in existence of the nuclear warheads produced by the apartheid regime in South Africa. I met with journalist Mungo Poore who took this photograph by walking into the unguarded facility during its dismantling.

The warheads where designed to be transported by the Israeli Jericho long-range ballistic missile system.
