While national flags fly at half-mast in honor of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, conversation continues around the controversies surrounding her political life.
Much of the focus in on her alleged involvement in the killing of 14-year-old youth activist Stompie Moeketsi Seipei.
Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke formed part of her legal team that represented her at the time.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, journalist Karyn Maughan gave details of an interview she conducted with Justice Moseneke in which he discussed the case.
He points out...that she was never tried over Stompie Seipei's murder and was in fact tried for the kidnapping of four young men who the Appeal Court accepted she believed were being abused and in danger.— Karyn Maughan, Tiso Black Star
Her chief body guard Jerry Richardson was convicted of Stompie's murder and tried to lay blame on her. Moseneke says there simply wasn't the evidence to suggest that she was directly involved with that at all.— Karyn Maughan, Tiso Black Star
He said that in his eyes, she is an absolute heroine, with an incredible ability to be able to take on injustice and soak up pain in a way that is not immediately describable. He also says that the full extent of what she endured has never been fully ventilated.— Karyn Maughan, Tiso Black Star
