While the documentary aired on eNCA, South Africans took to Twitter to express their anger and sadness at how the Struggle veteran had been treated.
Mama we did you wrong. Please forgive us. Rest in power #Winnie

That was painful, but so important to watch. The only time, after all she experienced in her life, that she really broke down in tears and pain was when hearing of Chris Hani’s assassination. #WinnieMadikizelaMandela your life was powerfully lived. Thank you.

#Winnie single handedly making an entire regime fear you!!! When they had to arrest her, the police came in swarms!! Just for ONE WOMAN, if that isn’t power I don’t know what is. She was stronger than I ever ever imagined she was. I’m sad to celebrate her life too late pic.twitter.com/9K0G2Nu7Il
