  • Description

    In South Africa the latest hearing of charges against black militant Mrs. Winnie Mandela has ended with an adjournment to 9 February. She is charged with five counts of contravening a Banning Order. Mrs. Mandela's husband, Nelson was jailed in 1964 for life, having been convicted on charges of sabotage and conspiring to start a revolution.

    SYNOPSIS: On Tuesday (17 January) the first day of the two-day hearing in Bloemfontein Mrs. Mandela took a break to cuddle her grand-daughter, Zaziwe, whose name translated means 'hope'. The case is not the first against Mrs. Mandela who has been under various Banning Orders since 1962.

    During the break, Mrs. Mandela's eldest daughter Zinzi spoke to newsmen about the banning order.

    If found guilty of the charges against her, Mrs. Mandela could face a total of 12 years in jail, but according to legal sources, sentences recently have been either light or suspended.
