Winnie Mandela

Wife of Nelson Mandela from 1958–1996.

Spent many years in exhile during the time of her then husbands imprisonment, remaining however, a strong and active opponent of white minority rule
Winnie lived a life under close surveillance

With allegations of militant rhetoric, her reputation became questionable to many people, and In 1991, Winnie was convicted of kidnapping and being an accessory to assault.

In a 1998 report of the South African Truth and Reconciliation commission, it allegedly stated that it found

"Ms Winnie Madikizela Mandela politically and morally accountable for the gross violations of human rights committed by the MUFC."It concluded that she had personally been directly responsible for the murder, torture, abduction and assault of numerous men, women and children, as well as indirectly responsible for even larger number of such crimes"
