40000 bid Winnie Mandela final goodbye

She struggled with a cough through the first part of her speech, with her daughter Swati Dlamini-Mandela, who also delivered Madikizela-Mandela's obituary, taking over and reading the first few paragraphs in which Mandela expressed her gratitude to the outpouring of commiserations the family received.

Instead she remained embedded in the community where she met Nelson Mandela at a bus stop in 1957.

"All those who resigned from the NEC of the women's league because they said they can't be led by a criminal they are here playing all important roles at your funeral, can we trust them or should we treat them with suspicion cde Winnie?". Zenani said, "It was my mother who kept his (Nelson Mandela) memory alive".

Soweto provides an important context in the life of Winne Mandela; it is where she lived with Nelson Mandela. Those who notice such things would have realized that her 2013 book, 491 Days-which tells the story of the brutality she experienced at the hands of the Apartheid state, the depths of her despair and her extraordinary resilience and defiance under extreme pressure-was already an invitation for a deep re-evaluation of her life. He continued, "Yet through everything Mama Winnie endured they could not break her, they could not silence her".

She was sacked after allegations of corruption emerged with her name featuring prominently.

She said those who vilified her mother should not for one moment think that the family would forget that.

Her daughter referred to a social media campaign that has swept South Africa since her death - "Winnie has not died, she multiplied" - in which young women post pictures of themselves in doeks, the traditional head scarf that Madikizela-Mandela often wore.

Condolences have poured in from around the world in remembrance of one of the 20th century's most prominent political activists.

In his fiery attack on those Malema said betrayed Madikizela-Mandela, EWN has put together five key points from his speech. Malema said she asked him to return to the ANC but he responded, "But which ANC do we go to?"

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 laid bare the edifice of patriarchy.

The late Madikizela Mandela united some people as witnessed by the attendance of people across the political divide. Dignitaries also included Presidents of the Republic of Congo and Namibia, as well as civil rights leaders from around the world, including the Rev. Jesse Jackson. The notable ones were mainly the ruling African National Congress and the Economic Freedom Fighters.

From the very start of the official programme, some of the people who filled the 40 000 capacity stadium made their views known - booing former presidents Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma when their presence was announced at the funeral.

Madikizela Mandela was the fifth in a family of 11 and is survived by three sisters.

Debate has raged over Madikizela-Mandela's legacy since the 81-year-old passed away on 2 April in Johannesburg. The President declared 10-day mourning with flags flying at half mast.
