South Africa's Mother of the Nation laid to rest in state funeral

South Africa's Mother of the Nation laid to rest in state funeral

Although only a few booed Mbeki, loud and drawn out booing was reserved for Zuma, who stepped down as the country's head of state in February.

Earlier, Malema's speech opened up all wounds when he directly addressed the fallen hero and said, "Mama, there are sell-outs here".

Firebrand opposition politician Julius Malema, who was expelled from the ANC, but who remained close to Winnie, said "she died a revolutionary. she never sold out".

"In apartheid South Africa, the combination of patriarchy and racism together meant that black women confronted enormous obstacles from the cradle to the grave - making her own achievements all the more exceptional", he said Friday at a memorial in NY, not mentioning Nelson Mandela at all.

"You [Madikizela-Mandela] trusted that your mission of putting the country first was embraced by an organisation that you loved; but Mama, you did not know that your organisation had been rendered incapable of loving you back", said Malema.

Although he did not name Ramaphosa, the EFF has previously expressed that he had a role in the killing of 34 miners by South African police during a protracted strike for better wages in 2012. "Zenani's tears revealed Mama Winnie's wounds". What do I tell them; what about those who killed their husbands for selfish gains? What do we do with them?

Trust us when we say, Juju was just getting started.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres described her as "an global symbol of resistance".

ANC and EFF members, in their party's regalia, set their political differences aside to bid their final farewell to the Mother of the Nation.

"She bandaged our wounds". The very channel that aired the documentary several times in the last few days was accused of unfairly focusing on the negative aspects of Madikizela-Mandela's activism hours after her death. He said he would request the ANC to confer its highest honour on her.

President Cyril Ramaphosa read out and dedicated Maya Angelo's poem "Still I rise" to Madikizela-Mandela, saying it could easily have been written to the struggle icon. I am going to go to Marikana without you, but I will be guided by your spirit. Others wore T-shirts emblazoned with an image of Madikizela-Mandel.

The body of Winnie Mandela is returned to her home in Soweto the day before the funeral for the anti-apartheid icon on April 13, 2018 in Soweto, South Africa. Recalling a recent conversation with her daughter Zenani Dlamini, he said she cried when she said her mother had lived a hard life. "Much of what my mother has been constantly asked to account for is simply ignored when it comes to her male counterparts".

"Praising her now shows us what hypocrites you are!"

"And to those who've vilified my mother through books, on social media and speeches, don't for a minute think we've forgotten", she said, flanked by her sister Zindziswa Mandela-Hlongwane.

"The Anti-apartheid regime has been misinterpreted to mean it was a man's triumph but we want to remind the world that it was not a man's struggle and triumph, she rose against a might of a nuclear state to bring peace to South Africa", she said.
