Mandela is a sell-out, he betrayed black people, says ex-wife

Nelson Mandela has been accused by his former wife of betraying South Africa's black population.

In a savage attack, Winnie Mandela said he had done nothing for the poor and should not have accepted the Nobel peace prize with the man who jailed him, FW de Klerk.

The 73-year-old said her ex-husband had become a 'corporate foundation' who was 'wheeled out' only to raise money for the ANC party he once led.

She said Archbishop Desmond Tutu was a cretin and claimed the sacrifices of Steve Biko and others in the fight against apartheid were being overlooked.

The comments were made in an interview yesterday with Nadira Naipaul, the wife of novelist V S Naipaul.

Mrs Mandela became notorious in 1991 when she was jailed for six years for the kidnap of Stompie Moeketsi - a sentence later cut to a fine.

Stompie, had been murdered three years earlier by members of Mrs Mandela's bodyguard, the Mandela United Football Club.

She also caused outrage by endorsing the punishment of apartheid collaborators with ' necklacing' - putting burning tyres around their necks.

Yesterday she said: 'This name Mandela is an albatross around the necks of my family.

'You all must realise that Mandela was not the only man who suffered. There were many others, hundreds who languished in prison and died.

'Mandela did go to prison and he went in there as a young revolutionary but look what came out. 'Mandela let us down. He agreed to a bad deal for the blacks. Economically we are still on the outside. The economy is very much "white". He prefers to sip tea with the queen the biggest oppressor of black people and have dinner with the Clintons.

Let the world know that Winnie Mandela will die for her people to ensure a free Africa for the Africans.

'I cannot forgive him for going to receive the Nobel with his jailer de Klerk. Hand in hand they went. Do you  think de Klerk released him from the goodness of his heart?  'He had to. The times dictated it, the world had changed.'

The Mandelas, who divorced in 1996, were married for 38 years - although together for only five.

Mrs Mandela criticised her country's Truth and Reconciliation Committee - which she appeared before in 1997 and which implicated her in gross violations of human rights.

She said: 'What good does the truth do? How does it help to anyone to know where and how their loved ones are killed or buried?  Africa must be free.

'That Bishop Tutu who turned it all into a religious circus came here. He had a cheek to tell me to appear.

'I told him that he and his other like-minded cretins were only sitting there because of our struggle and me.
Look what they make him do. The great Mandela. He has no control or say any more but has transformed into a stool pigeon for the white people.

'They put that huge statue of him right in the middle of the most affluent white area of Johannesburg.

'Mandela is now like a corporate foundation. He is wheeled out globally to collect the money.'

She said her daughters, Zenani, 51, and Zindzi, 50, had to struggle through red tape to speak to their 91-year-old father, who led South Africa from 1994 to 19

Who takes note of a verdict by an unfaithfull woman?

Every good woman stands in defence of her man, now look diligently at the record of a woman who sees Mandela as a sell out.

I understand now why Graca Machel should be awarded a heroine status in South Africa.

I do not trust any word from the mouth of a dishonest housewife, she is not a good wife, not a good mother, not a good granny so why would she be trusted as a good witness on political matters?

A none betrayed black man in Zimbabwe and the rest of Africa is worse than any black South African.

You will never know what you have untill you loose it Gogo Mandela.
