    I'm torn between her 2003 fraud conviction of "43 counts of fraud and 25 of theft".. her advocation of necklacing (the process of imprisoning a human being inside old car tires before pouring gasoline all over them and setting them on fire) or her 1991 conviction of kidnapping and accessory to assault of a 14 year old child (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stompie_Moeketsi).
    Considering the 'marriage'  "ended in separation (April 1992) and divorce (March 1996)" i can only imagine what Nelson's personal motivation was for continuing the relationship up to that point in the first place.

    Winnie's infidelity during and after his imprisonment.  It's said that she also neglected him (after release).

    when given power, it's seen to change people for the worse. unless you are well grounded. It has made men rape, mother's to kill or harm their children. children to kill smaller children or their pets and their neighbor pets. also the abuse and death of our seniors  citizens.

    Who knows.  Have you tried sending Nelson a letter or email?  Ask him.
