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?
That was Chris Rock back when he was still funny —
In the 1990’s, I was asked to write short biographies on both Nelson and Winnie Mandela for a textbook series for young people. They paid me for both, but only published the one on Nelson. My article on Winnie almost certainly didn’t pass muster because it was too unflattering, but that’s the way it had to be if I were to tell her true story.
Earlier, this company had paid me for an article on Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the Soviet atom spies, but when the book was published, it contained a different article—not nearly as well-researched as mine—which portrayed them as victims of “McCarthyism.”
Whatever it is, nothing will happen as a result of it. The icons of the left cannot be tarnished by such light pecaddiloes as conspiracy and murder.
God is Just. His punishments always fit the crime.
Kind of like they gush over Michelle Obama.
Prospective birds of a feather?
You forgot to mention how much she loved the smell.
She was connected to murders from the mid 80's through the early 90's and apparently was cheating on Nelson while he was in prison. He finally divorced her in 1994. I doubt anyone here is shocked that she was still winning elections in 2009.
What is necklacing?
These same sh*twit teachers used to protest against nuclear arms, too. The irony was intense.
CNN was already previewing the Mandela Myth last week when they thought he was going to die. Since he was released from the hospital, they had to put it back into mothballs, but we will be treated to the msm’s worship of this avowed Leftist when he finally croaks.
An old tire filled with gasoline in put around the victim’s neck and set afire.
They still think her crap doesn’t stink.
Once they're done doing the same with Chavez.
“Relatives sang hymns and songs from South Africa’s anti-apartheid struggle Tuesday”
WTF has that got to do with Winnie Mandela possibly murdering people?!
If you're white, your chances are likely greater, especially if Mandela goes room temp by that time.
Knowing that makes it just a little bit worse.
See 19 and 37.
However, my article was rejected in favor of one which portrayed the Rosenbergs as victims of "McCarthyism," anti-Communist hysteria and government overreach. Its sources included The Rosenberg Story by Virginia Gardner (New York: Masses and Mainstream, 1954). Virginia Gardner, a journalist, was a long-time Communist Party activist, and Masses and Mainstream, which published it, was described by Howard Fast, a Communist at the time, as "a magazine of the Left."
The timing for the publication of a pro-Rosenberg article couldn't have been worse. Months, or perhaps weeks, after the textbook was issued, the government released the Venona files, which Richard Lamphere had mentioned in his memoir, and which provided overwhelming evidence that the Rosenbergs were spies. The evidence mounted in succeeding years as KGB files were made public. In 2001, Aleksandr Feklisov, the Rosenbergs' Soviet case officer, even published his own memoir: The Man Behind the Rosenbergs : By the KGB Spymaster Who was the case officer of Julius Rosenberg, Klaus Fuchs, and Helped Resolve the Cuban Missile Crisis (New York: Enigma, 2001).
So the case against the Rosenbergs is, for all practical purposes, closed.
“With our matches and necklaces, we’ll liberate this country.”—Winnie Mandela
See post #19 for a description of necklacing.
On a side note, there is no historical marker, monument or placard at the old Chambers farm. The farm is in heavily wooded and hilly terrain and is REALLY easy to miss unless someone points it out to you (miss or confuse with a much more visible neighboring farm, which is what most city people who drive out here to see it do). The current owners (who I do not know) seem to like it that way.
Whittaker Chambers’ farm is owned by his son, and it remains a going concern, having survived keen competition, droughts, etc. However, in recent years, it has been threatened by a local water project. For more information about the farm and efforts to save it, surf over to http://www.savewhittakerchambersfarm.org/
Thanks for the info on the Chambers farm.
I just read “Witness” late last year. the edition I received from our library came from another state library in the system and was a 1952 edition of the book.
It was utterly fascinating.
I’m aware of that project, which fortunately does not affect my property. I’m sorry that it hits the Chambers farm. I believe it is all on hold at present. My grandfather had a sharpening business and Chambers was one of his regular customers. If you drive about a half-mile past the Chambers farm going toward MD Route 30, you will see a residence with a sign offering sharpening services. That is the home of the fellow who bought my grandfather’s business when he retired. It’s a small world.

I remember their names also, but Winnie was know for necklaces, putting tires around the neck of her enemies and setting them on fire. Nelson was a commie and because of his color the press loved him. he was their hero...no matter what they did.
Thank you for your research into the Rosenbergs - They most definitely ARE deliberately raised as “heroes” to today’s socialists BECAUSE of that kind of selective editing and not-so-subtle propaganda.
Propaganda that continues in textbooks, histories, and day-to-day press attitudes.
I know I’m rolling the dice, but its safer than me driving thru certain sections of Chicago by my little old white self.
