  • • Peter Hain is a former Labour MP and minister for Africa.
  • Mandela was arrested several times by the security forces and faced torture and other forms of violence.
  • For Mandela and those who fought against apartheid government here on the South Africa soil, the ANC had relinquished its historical mandate to secure a full revolution in South Africa by being too conciliatory.
  • Tragic, heroic and ultimately deeply flawed, Winnie can be correctly criticised for her rogue later life, but her courage and radical spirit in adversity should never be forgotten.
  • So judge Winnie Mandela against the background of circumstance, not ignorance.
  • He may be cast as a hero of the anti-apartheid struggle but he has a blind eye to the violence inflicted on black South Africans by the likes of Winnie Mandela.
  • It is in remembering and healing a wounded people that we honor the legacy of Winnie Madikizela Mandela.
  • Please feel free to quote all these people who are supporting apartheid.
  • Nice try by Hain but Mandela was his own man and developed his own ideas in prison.
