Madikizela-Mandela laid to rest

ANC Women's League held a memorial service for Mam'Winnie

Fiery and stirring tributes as the nation bids farewell to Mam' Winnie

"It is little comfort to us that they have come out now", she said. She told how she met Madikizela-Mandela 60 years ago at the Baragwanath Hospital, where they both worked.

Tens of hundreds of individuals sang, cheered and cried because the flag-draped casket of anti-apartheid activist Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was escorted from her official funeral on Saturday.

"If it is true that the ANC want to honour you, let them name Cape Town Airport after Winnie Mandela".

Zezani was almost born in prison, as Winnie Mandela was arrested close to her birth in 1959 and when she was four her father was sent to prison, where he would stay for the next 27 years.

Foreign dignitaries at the funeral include the leaders of Namibia, Swaziland and the Republic of Congo, as well as American civil rights activist Jesse Jackson.

With snow still covering local courses he is having to play virtual reality golf to knock the rust off of his irons and wedges. That's what we're striving for. "We are supposed to have an outdoor meet here next Tuesday, but I don't see it happening".

Thousands of mourners have packed a 40,000-seat stadium to bid farewell to the powerful figure who will be buried as a national hero, after lively debate over how she should be remembered.

It was in the year 1964, when former South African President Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment and his wife Winnie campaigned tirelessly for his release.

Ramaphosa said he spoke to Madikizela-Mandela shortly before her death about her concerns and wishes.

Many memorializing Madikizela-Mandela acknowledged her as a political drive in her personal proper.

Similarly, the ANC also prevented the struggle stalwart from speaking at the funeral of late former ANC Youth League president and party NEC member Peter Mokaba, although she was the president of the ANCWL and the league was on the funeral programme that day.

"Proud, defiant, articulate, she uncovered the lie of apartheid", President Cyril Ramaphosa mentioned throughout his tribute.

She appealed and was found guilty of being an accessory, and the sentence was reduced to a fine and a suspended prison term. Madikizela-Mandela denied any knowledge of any killings.

Though she fought fiercely for democracy, Ms Madikizela-Mandela floundered in a political career after the first free elections in 1994.

Mandela divorced her in 1996, claiming infidelity and saying that after his launch from jail, his spouse made him "the loneliest man". The following year, she was appointed deputy Prime Minister of arts, culture, science and technology in Mandela's unity government but she was later fired after allegations of corruption emerged. "It is turn into clear that South Africa, and certainly the world, holds women and men to completely different requirements of morality". She bore witness to our suffering.

Tembisa resident Simphiwe Nzekeni said: "We are here for mama, there is a lot she has done for us and the struggle will still continue".
