When Winnie speaks…

…as the voice of reason and sanity in South Africa on violence in the townships… Well, you can just fill in the blanks all by yer lonesome. Cuz I dun’t want no soccer club coming after me. I’m a foreign devil, alright. And that makes me fair game in these here neck of the woods. So I’ll just mosey on over to the editorial and comment pages at the Mail & Guardian, one of the best English-language newspapers here abouts.

If you go there, check out the Winnie Madikizela-Mandela interview, the Drew Forrest commentary (really great analysis on why President Thabo Mbeki is such a dud, and why the ANC and every newspaper in the country wants him gone asap).
