Madikizela-Mandela's family representative, Thembelani Madikizela, said on Monday that his family was not stunned by the bigots comments supposedly made.
The Sunday World revealed it was asserted that Werkman's lawyers had uncovered bigoted messages in which De Ruyter and his partners at Sasol purportedly implied that while the late British leader Margaret Thatcher was the "Iron Lady", Madikizela-Mandela was a pressing woman.
"It is normal that as a Struggle symbol, numerous bigots would have made an account that she was no one important. The comments (supposedly) by De Ruyter obviously demonstrates he would've remained on the individuals who abused our kin during the Struggle. So we are not shocked."
Madikizela said they protested these "genuine defamatory comments on our auntie. Africans realize that Madikizela-Mandela would have risen up to safeguard herself from such bigoted assaults from the individuals who don't esteem people of color".

EFF president Julius Malema was obviously likewise not saved. De Ruyter and his partners supposedly considered him a "white-kicker" when white individuals were, as per them, the citizens.
Accordingly, the red berets said: "People of color are viewed as just homegrown laborers, who merit no regard and honor for their authentic work .
"De Ruyter and his partners had no enthusiasm for the important commitment that Winnie Madikizela-Mandela made in the battle for opportunity in this country, since De Ruyter, his family and partners were and keep on being recipients of the framework that looked to limit ladies like Madikizela-Mandela to a condition of nothingness according to the white foundation."
The EFF said: "It doesn't make any difference which commitment individuals of color make to society, or the level of their capabilities, for white men like De Ruyter, individuals of color will perpetually remain pressing women. They hold this view of every individual of color, and surprisingly in the professional workplace, bigots like De Ruyter treat dark experts in a scornful way.
"We realize that this will generally be valid even today with regards to De Ruyter on the grounds that he has been constant in abusing and in any event, excusing dark chiefs since the time he showed up at Eskom."
The EFF required the Eskom Board to excuse De Ruyter and said the insurance he got from Eskom and the public authority was "sickening and an affront to Madikizela-Mandela and the people who passed on battling to free this country".
Eskom representative Sikhonathi Mantshantsha said De Ruyter had on Monday gotten an email from David Hertz, administrator of Werkman's law office, preventing information from getting the report.
"André de Ruyter previously became mindful of the supposed presence of this supposed Werksmans report as an outcome of inquiries Eskom got from Bloomberg News on December 4, 2019 – six years after such claimed examination. Right up 'til today, Mr De Ruyter has never been given any report, or draft.
"It is extremely frustrating yet not unexpected that such a supposed report that has all the earmarks of being a fragmented attack piece is presently being flowed to cause greatest harm to his standing. We would trust the media applies legitimate guidelines of news coverage morals and be completely mindful of its job in sustaining and supporting a particularly detestable plan."
Endeavors to arrive at Werkman's law office were ineffective.
