Summary Note 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.
