Winnie Mandela funeral: South Africa bids farewell to 'mother of the nation'

ANC supporters attended Mama Winnie's funeral

According to Mkhabane, Madikizela-Mandela used to talk to the Detainees Parents Support Committee to try and encourage the parents of political detainees to get their children to return to school and get an education.

Family and friends wept as a military band played and the casket was lowered into the ground.

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

A navy honor guard carries anti-apartheid activist Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's coffin, wrapped within the flag of South Africa, out of Orlando stadium following her funeral service, in Soweto, South Africa, Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Another mourner, Mpho Moselane from North West, said that even though she was not present during apartheid, Madikizela-Mandela will always be a symbol of how strong a black woman is. She told how she met Madikizela-Mandela 60 years ago at the Baragwanath Hospital, where they both worked.

"She bore witness to our struggling".

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

Under developments, the entry said: "In preparation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela International Airport was extensively expanded and renovated".

"Long before it was fashionable to call for Nelson Mandela's release from Robben Island, it was my mother who kept his memory alive", elder daughter Zenani Mandela-Dlamini said, as the audience erupted in cheers. "She was an exceptional woman, she was fearless".

"As the world, particularly the media, who have been directly complicit in the smear campaign against my mother, took notice of your resistance so too did this narrative begin to change" said Mandela-Dlamini. "Praising her now that she's gone shows what hypocrites you are".

Concise News gathered that a full state honours was held on Saturday for the anti-apartheid icon at a stadium funeral in Soweto.

The funeral is the highest level that South Africa accords for someone who was not head of state.

In 1991, a court found Ms Madikizela-Mandela guilty of the boy's kidnapping and assault and sentenced her to six years in jail.

Much of the stadium is filled with supporters of the ruling African National Congress party, the former liberation movement that Madikizela-Mandela had a rocky relationship with in recent years.

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. "She fought from beginning to the end".

Civil rights chief Jesse Jackson, who attended the funeral, mentioned Friday that Madikizela-Mandela was accountable for making the anti-apartheid motion "a worldwide wrestle".
