Jenny and her husband, Marius, fled the country due to persecution for their anti-apartheid activism. In 1984, Jenny and her daughter were killed in Angola when she opened a parcel bomb sent by the security police. Her son witnessed the bombing. The perpetrators were granted amnesty by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
