Winnie Mandela accuses Italy of Racism

Former South African first lady Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and her delegation were apparently held in custody for 45 minutes for no apparent reason at Rome's Fumicione Airport last Thursday. Speaking to Beeld at Johannesburg International Airport after her return from Rome, she said it was ironic that during her visit to address a conference on human rights, she had been the victim of blatant racism. She said it was shocking that a First World country like Italy could be guilty of violating human rights through racism. Madikizela-Mandela said all their documents were in order and the Italian authorities still have given no reason why they were held.
