For nearly thirty years, until her husband was released in 1989, Caroline Motsoaledi was a prison widow. Elias was one of the Rivonia triallists jailed alongside Nelson Mandela. Working as a machinist in a factory, Caroline brought up her seven children singlehandedly. Only during the factory holidays in December was she free to travel from Johannesburg to Cape Town to see her husband on Robben Island.
