“Ace Magashule a definite no no no the man will finish what is remaining of our movement he will kill it inffect” [sic]

Meanwhile, a tourism lecturer at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) said Madikizela-Mandela’s Brandfort years remain significant and must be honoured.
“It is firstly hurtful because public funds were used and syphoned and we could’ve been speaking about a different legacy,” said Unathi Henama.
“Imagine today if we had a world-class monument here? To ensure that the story of Winnie Mandela can be told, in its entirety from the time she came… we would be speaking about a different story. The post-apartheid government is not assisting. Today should have been a time of celebration saying that we have done this ….if she is an icon, this should be iconic.
