Despite the fact that she is a violent thug mass murderess of men, women and children.
The South African Truth and Reconciliation commission found "Ms Winnie Madikizela Mandela politically and morally accountable for the gross violations of human rights", concluding that she had personally been responsible for the murder, torture, abduction and assault of numerous men, women and children, as well as indirectly responsible for even larger number of such crimes.
Winnie Mandela was also a big fan and advocate of "necklacing", which is the practice of tying a tire around someone's neck filled with gasoline and lighting it on fire. This is serious journalistic malpractice on the part of ABC and historic revisionism.
