Controversies• In 1986, she was accused of carrying a virtual terror atmosphere in certain areas of Soweto, along with the other members of the African National Congress (ANC), as she allegedly supported the practice of "necklacing," i.e. burning tyres around suspected informants' necks.

• In 1991, she was sentenced to 6 years' imprisonment for her role in the kidnapping and killing of a 14-year-old township militant Stompie Seipei on 1 January 1989. Later, her sentence was reduced to a fine.

• In 2003, she was convicted of multiple counts of bank fraud and theft as she was involved in various deals of false bank loans and funeral policies granted to poor people, and was sentenced to 5 years' imprisonment. Following her conviction, she resigned from all the positions that she held in the ANC. In July 2004, in an appeal, the Pretoria High Court stated that "the crimes were not committed for personal gain," but for her involvement in the fraud, she was suspended for three years and six months.

• In June 2007, the Canadian High Commission in South Africa refused to give her a visa to Toronto, where she was supposed to visit a fundraising concert organized by 'MusicaNoir.'
