WINNIE MANDELA SUSPENDED FROM ANOTHER ANC POST

The African National Congress (ANC) has dealt another blow to Winnie Mandela's troubled political career by suspending her from the leadership of its women's league.

The league said the veteran South African activist had been suspended from its executive committee for organizing a protest by supporters to demand her reinstatement as head of the movement's social welfare department.

"A demonstration against the ANC by its own members is tantamount to a mutiny in military terms," the committee said in a statement June 1.

Mrs. Mandela, who denies allegations of wrongdoing, is also on bail while she appeals her conviction last year of kidnapping and assault charges involving four youths.

Meanwhile, Mangosuthu Buthelezi acknowledged June 2 that rivalry between the Inkatha Freedom Party, which he leads, and Nelson Mandela's ANC was the cause of black township violence and urged the ANC leader to "stand together" with him to end the violence.
