NPR's Charlayne Hunter-Gault reports on the fifth day of testimony in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's hearing into alleged crimes committed by Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. A police official told the commission today that the head of Madikizela-Mandela's bodyguards had been a police informant in the late 1980's. The bodyguard, who's now serving a life sentence for murdering a suspected informant, will testify next week.
