Archbishop Desmond Tutu's commission concluded that Madikizela-Mandela was complicit in that killing and at least 11 other murders or attempted murders – sometimes because the victims were deemed (usually incorrectly) to be informers, sometimes because they were troublesome.
The commission also concluded that she took part in the savage beatings of others in the desperately poor black Johannesburg suburb of Soweto who ran afoul of her so-called Mandela United Football Club. One victim testified that she whipped him. In another instance, two youths had slogans carved into their chests and battery acid poured on the wounds.
"There have been problems in the past, but to prevent her from coming in the country, it is something they (the Conservative government) need to justify," said Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion.
