Nelson Mandela (L) and his then-wife Winnie raise their fists 11 February 1990 in Paarl to salute cheering crowd upon Mandela's release from Victor Verster prison.
The film brings a fresh perspective on Winnie Madikizela-Mandela&39;s life, dispelling some controversial notions about her.
It includes interviews with Madikizela-Mandela and those who discredited her, particularly during the apartheid years.
One of the revelations is that the ANC allegedly gave Nelson Mandela an ultimatum to divorce her or lose the presidency.
This has social media users hot under the collar.
They&39;re now accusing the late statesman of betraying Mama Winnie and the black population.

The Winnie documentary got me almost to the point of crying. They gave Winnie a raw deal and she never complained. I love her forever!— Phil g (@philndoda) April 12, 2018
