Description

Author(s): Msimang, Sisonke

The Resurrection of Winnie Mandela charts the rise and fall-and rise, again-of one of South Africa's most controversial political figures. 'Ma Winnie' fought apartheid with uncommon ferocity, but her implication in kidnapping, torture and killings-including the murder of 14-year-old Stompie Seipei-would later see her shunned. Sisonke Msimang argues that this complicated woman was not witch but warrior- that her violence, like that of the men she fought alongside, was a function of her political views rather than a descent into madness. In resurrecting Ma Winnie, Msimang asks what it means to reclaim this powerful woman as an icon while honouring apartheid's victims-those who were collateral damage and whose stories have yet to be told.

About the author:

Sisonke Msimang was born in exile to South African parents-a freedom fighter and an accountant-and raised in Zambia, Kenya and Canada before studying in the US as an undergraduate. Her family returned to South Africa after apartheid was abolished in the early 1990s. Sisonke has held fellowships at Yale University, the Aspen Institute and the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, and is a regular contributor to the Guardian, Daily Maverick and New York Times. She now lives in Perth, Australia, where she is head of oral storytelling at the Centre for Stories.
