What I specially remember of her is that at the Nelson Mandela Sports and Culture Day event, we were on the same pavilion in Johannesburg. Winnie and I had a conversation, where she expressed her deep concern over what was happening within the ANC. She called on me as a so-called former oppressor to do my part to help keep South Africa on the right path.

My wife Elita and I would like to convey our heartfelt condolences to Winnie’s family and associates.
