Some bloggers have the audacity to politicise death, some individuals are insensitive.

@Swinedunus-6-Rats-0-namanje Stupidity reveal itself by what people post or write in huge platforms like this. Many tries to impress even though it is of sad news. I hope some parents should have done much better than this to raise a young person who uses his power to write sensational rubbish like you.Any way RIP Mama Winnie. We were accepted to the world due to freedom fighters like you Mama and we are enjoying soccer and lot of things due to your struggles. Rip great soldier of the soil.

Rats(Kelly Khumalo in-laws) always on the media for wrong reasons. Madikizela Mandela and football are two different items. Ria Ledwaba, Manto Madlala and Anastacia Tchicklas are the only woman we know in soccer. If Kelly Khumalo fc mourns politicians what will EFF mourn?
