    Winnie is now very old, she must retire from politics and concentrate her energy to herself. Give guidance from home not Luthuli house.This baton must be given to young people. We will provide her with state pension and recognition as required. We also know she is financially stable. Let her rest. Sorry for what happened to her to keep her in hospital.

      Tommy - 2012-06-03 07:13

      Maybe she can start a new soccer team?

      Bless Boswell - 2012-06-03 09:30

      If she is financially stable, why does she need a state pension?

      louiseroger.higham - 2012-06-03 08:12

      If u stop being angry your life may improve and u may just start living and enjoy it.

  • Barefoot - 2012-06-03 05:47

    Shocked: until we realise that there are extremists in all people although a small number we will never learn to be sensitive, the few that are so blatantly insensitive are not doing anything to help- you are asking for change while your actions show you don't want to, i don't foresee a certain political party coming into power anytime soon.

  • temudau - 2012-06-03 06:56

    Speedy recovery mrs. Mandela

  • nhlanhla.maphanga.52 - 2012-06-03 06:59

  • zolisa.dlokovu - 2012-06-03 07:43

    Its unbelievable. white people(majority) will always hate us.Winnie has done many negative things but one cant say she deserves to die.its unaccepable. I was also very angry after reading the story of Stompie Sepei but I cant say this woman deserves to die.God is the judge

  • Philip - 2012-06-03 07:52

    I don't wish her any harm but honestly, WHO CARES!

      Phae - 2012-06-03 09:02

  • mathoki - 2012-06-03 08:24

    A woman falls and goes to hospital, all that people can say is that she must enjoy her pain? ... I live in a terrible place. I hope she gets better soon.

  • lucky.maduwa - 2012-06-03 09:01

      Phae - 2012-06-03 09:09

      You are so right, when will people understand democracy, racism and apardheid are just Sooo yesterday! Let's rather discuss fashion, cellphones and cars, they are afterall far more important, and what's more, much more current and meaningful.

  • jimzimbo - 2012-06-03 09:07
