Following the murder of a family in the Transkei the Minister of Justice established the 1964 General Laws Amendment Act. This act made sabotage a capital offense and made it possible for those involved in sabotage to be subject to arrest without trial powers. This affected the anti-apartheid movement as other sabotage groups were more likely to be detained quicker. Poqo installed fear into the people of South Africa which in effect led people push for the movement to end.
