NPR's Charlayne Hunter-Gault reports on the second day of dramatic hearings in South Africa on Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's alleged role in numerous killings, abductions and beatings in the 1980's. Today a former bodyguard said he saw Madikizela-Mandela stab a township youth, and another ex-supporter said Madikizela-Mandela told her to sing loudly to cover the cries of four young men being beaten. Madikizela-Mandela, the former wife of President Nelson Mandela, has denied all wrongdoing.
