She was human, she made mistakes and she was the epitome of imbokodo

Emotional callers pay tribute to the life of Winnie Madikizela Mandela on The Eusebius McKaiser Show.

Callers on The Eusebius McKaiser Show shared their tributes for struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela Mandela who passed away after an illness on Monday, at the age of 81.

Caller Prince asked if he may be allowed to debate Mandela's legacy without it being labeled as a whitewash.

In the fight against apartheid, mistakes were made. Whenever you talk about Stompie, people get outraged. Mandela was called a sellout, can we debate her legacy fairly? We cannot have political amnesia in South Africa just because a person dies.

Prince, caller

She was human, she had errors, she made mistakes, she had flaws. Even in the end, in the dying days of apartheid Madiba let it known that he didnt approve of most of her ways.

Prince, caller

Rashida, another caller said Mandela was a wonderful struggle veteran and she will be missed.

There are blemishes on her part like the whole Mandela Football Club debacle. We had the whole Abubaka Ashfarde story, nothing proved but definitely where there is smoke there is fire.

Rashida, caller

Tumelo said he was agitated when 702 played a clip of Winnie Mandela at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and he doesn't know if the media has taken time to investigate that Jerry Richardson admitted to killing Stompie Seipei.

I remember Winnie as a revolutionary, Winnie as a person who resonated with the masses, Winnie who was not detached like other politicians from the masses of our people and a person who responded to community issues.

Tumelo, caller

Zamani said Mam Winnie was the epitome of an imbokodo and was a strong and fearless woman who suffered torture who was banished by the apartheid government.

A woman who was on the ground, always who was amongst the poor of the poorest in times of need and in their time of grievances.

Zamani, caller
