Mandela United Footall Club

The MUFC was established in late 1986 when Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was instrumental in resolving an internal conflict in the Soweto Youth Congress. Youths involved in the conflict set up the football club and moved into the outbuildings of the Mandela home in Orlando West, Soweto, Johannesburg, and, after this was burnt down, to her home in Diepkloof extention. Allegations of brutality were first levelled against the youths in 1987. Later their behaviour was described by community residents as a 'reign of terror'. Club members, and Ms Madikizela-Mandela herself, were implicated directly or indirectly in a range of incidents, including assaults and abduction and the murder and attempted murder of at least a dozen individuals.
