Thousands Of Mourners Bid Winnie Mandela Farewell

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Soweto on Friday to see the funeral procession of Winnie Mandela ahead of her final send-off this weekend.

Family and friends wept as a military band played and the casket was lowered into the ground. She died on Monday, April 2, at the age of 81.

Zezani said Mandela's family took issue with how a former police commissioner mistreated Winnie only to tell the truth after her death.

Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, who attended the funeral, said on Friday that Ms Madikizela-Mandela was responsible for making the anti-apartheid movement "a global struggle".

Despite Madikizela-Mandela's long struggle against the white-minority government in South Africa, she was accused of being involved in deadly violence against suspected traitors.

"She bore witness to our suffering".

She said: "It is only when all black groups, join hands and speak with one voice that we shall be a bargaining force which will decide its own destiny".

And he recited Maya Angelou's poem "Still I Rise".

"Lengthy earlier than it was trendy to name for Nelson Mandela's launch from Robben Island, it was my mom who saved his reminiscence alive", elder daughter Zenani Mandela-Dlamini mentioned as the group erupted in cheers. Mandela, South Africa's first black president, fired her as one in every of his deputy ministers. Like her, you showed that we can be attractive, powerful and revolutionary-even as we challenge the lies that have been peddled for so long.

"You show that we can be handsome, powerful and revolutionary - even as we challenge the lies that have been peddled for so long".

It has become clear that South African and the world hold women and men to different standards of morality.

Winnie who was referred to as the anti-apartheid icon was honored at Orlando stadium in Soweto, South Africa. "We can not pretend like South Africa is not in crisis, our country is in crisis and anyone who can not see that is just bluffing themselves".

The ANC's current president Cyril Ramaphosa, who is also the country's president, the ANC Women's League, and the UDF were just some of those Malema targeted.

Mourners wore black, green and gold - colors of the ruling African National Congress political party.

Millions of South Africans said an emotional goodbye to anti-apartheid activist Winnie Madikizela-Mandela at her official funeral on Saturday, with supporters fiercely defending her complex legacy.

She led an global campaign calling for his release.

I hope that the rediscovery of the truth about my mother helps South Africans come to terms with the pivotal role that she, Winnie Nomzamo Madikizela Mandela, played in freeing us from the shackles of the system of terrorism and white supremacy known as Apartheid.
