Winnie Mandela, South African Anti-Apartheid Campaigner and Former Wife of Nelson Mandela, Dead at 81

(From Fox News)

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, an anti-apartheid campaigner and the former wife of Nelson Mandela, died Monday, her personal assistant confirmed to Fox News. She was 81.

Madikizela-Mandela was married to the late Nelson Mandela for nearly four decades. The couple was famously pictured hand-in-hand in 1990 as Mandela walked out of prison after spending 27 years behind bars.

She campaigned tirelessly for her husband’s release. Madikizela-Mandela’s own activism against the apartheid regime led to her being imprisoned for months and years under house arrest.

However, her legacy was marred by allegations of corruption and a kidnapping and assault conviction. She was removed from Mandela’s cabinet three years after the couple separated in 1992. The couple divorced in 1996.
