JOHANNESBURG (AP) Relatives sang hymns and songs from South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle Tuesday as forensic scientists exhumed bodies believed to belong to two young activists last seen 24 years ago at the home of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
Madikizela-Mandela has denied all knowledge of the two. But her chief bodyguard, Jerry Richardson, told the commission that he and a colleague had killed the two on her orders.
Nicodemus Sono, father of the missing man, told the commission that Madikizela-Mandela had come to his home with his son, face bruised from beatings, in November 1998. She had demanded photographs and documents, telling the father that his son was a spy for the apartheid police.

I even remember on The Cosby Show, when they named the twin babies “Nelson” and “Winnie”.
Oh My —
There goes even more of the Mandela myth
Google “necklacing.” Winnie Mandela ordered many such atrocities. She is a monster. Both Mandelas are crooks. Seeing them lionized makes me physically ill.
And I’m planning on a buffalo hunt in South Africa in August, I hope they don’t end up hunting me.
Not to worry...in the next life they’ll be in the Lion’s den, so to speak...
They took a producing country and turned it manure overnight.
Obama is working hard to do the same thing here and for the same reason——Racism.
You said it.
Wasn’t there a young teenage boy who was ‘necklaced’?
She is demonic.
I remember when my liberal Dutch friend who gets ALL of her news from the NYT gushed over her (and him). I remember I became instantly enraged and screamed they are !@#$%^&* communist! And I asked her if she had any idea what necklacing was. She did not know.
And you know why, too.
Anyone care to guess which South African murder inquest will receive more publicity?
Oscar Pistorius v Winnie Mandela.
Betting line forms here.
I question the sanity :) of any American who leaves this country, especially those that travel to Africa or the ME.
But I have to say, Schadenfreud!
Winnie Mandela’s crimes are old news. And “What difference does it make?”
Chris Rock on why Nelson Mandela divorced her.
I don’t know who wound up blackmailing Chris Rock, because at one time, he was about as non-PC as they came....Now, he is as PC as they come.
The victim was sat on the ground, hands tied behind their back, a tyre with gasoline in the hollow was placed around their neck and lit on fire.
Winnie personally ordered and supervised many such horrific executions. As I recall, St. Nelson only divorced her when such became widely known. Sort of like St. BO leaving the church of Rev. Wright.
I presume this is one of those “reconciliation commissions” that is empowered to find the truth, provided nobody goes to jail or suffers consequences as a result?
