How has government honoured Winnie? Magashule


Newly elected African National Congress Secretary General Ace Magashule.

JOHANNESBURG - ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule says the Free State government has done much to honour Winnie Madikizela-Mandela that the media does not know about.

Magasule was visiting the family of slain apartheid-era teen activist Stompie Seipei on Sunday when eNCA&39;s Samkele Maseko asked if he was not embarrassed about Mama Winnie&39;s Brandfort home.

Madikizela-Mandela spent eight years in the Free State house after being banished to the town by the apartheid regime in 19-77.

The Free State government was meant to renovate and turn the house into a museum but has so far only a barbed-wire fence has been erected.

I ask ANC SG @DrAceMagashule if he feels embarrassed about the Brandforthouse that the Provincial Government was meant to renovate. This is the house WinnieMandela lived when she was banished by the Apartheid Regime

Magashule turned the spotlight on other ANC and government leaders.

On Saturday, Magashule denied that the provincial government misused funds meant for the restoration of the house.

On Thursday, former finance minister Trevor Manuel lambasted Magashule for failing to honour his promise of restoring the house in Brandfort and turning it into a museum.
