'Let us not judge her, she never abandoned her people'
Following her death on Monday, much of the focus around the life and legacy of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has been on how she never abandoned her people.
The 81 year old, who died in hospital in Gauteng, continued to live in Soweto long after many of her struggle comrades moved into 'wealthier' areas of Johannesburg.
On Monday evening, a listener named Queen, from Johannesburg, called into the Late Nights show on Cape Talk.
She told host Sara-Jayne King that as a tour guide she is often asked by visitors how the people of Soweto feel about Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
She said she always gives the same answer.
I always say - you can never be loved by all - that's it.Queen, caller
She chose to live among her people in Soweto. She could have moved out, but she chose to stay by her people. She lived for the people of Soweto.Queen, caller
