Most of what I read about Winnie Mandela is laudatory, full of praise for her strong stand with a little nod to her apparent viscous criminality. Anyone who praises the African Neck less is brutal.
Based on the article belwo, we all should be glad she is gone.
"In the mid-1980s Madikizela-Mandela exerted a "reign of terror" in Soweto, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) established by Mandela’s government to investigate human rights abuses revealed many of her violent activities during that period. The TRC had found Madikizela-Mandela to have been "politically and morally accountable for the gross violations of human rights committed by the "Mandela United Football Club", her security detail. Madikizela-Mandela endorsed violent behaviour; including necklacing against alleged police informers and collaborators with the National Party government. Her security detail carried out a number of these actions, including the kidnapping, torture, and murder of such individuals, most notoriously the teenager Stompie Moeketsi."
