Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s death is forcing us to revisit the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and expose some hidden truths, even by the Commission itself.
That's according to ANC Veteran Cheryl Carolus who has shared her thoughts Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s contested legacy.
Speaking to Karima Brown she said she was saddened by certain events at the late stalwart's funeral.
Here we had somebody who was a stalwart in our freedom struggle being laid to rest, a mother, a grandmother and then there were these unseemly spats of people who were behaving like hyenas and vultures, it was just so disrespectful that it leaves a really horrible taste in my mouth.— Cheryl Carolus, ANC Veteran
Carolus spoke of the 'disregard for the children of Mam' Winnie' and said those people should feel ashamed of themselves.
We are not people like that, we are actually a nation of decent people. And it's almost something that I think was also so patriarchal, these men, even in her death claiming her body and fighting over it.— Cheryl Carolus, ANC Veteran
