Winnie Mandela Dies At 81


South African anti-apartheid campaigner Winnie Mandela has died aged 81, her personal assistant says.

Winnie Madikizela Mandela was the former wife of South Africa’s first black president, Nelson Mandela.

However, in later years her reputation became tainted legally and politically.

Her family are expected to release a statement .
