Why is Winnie's role against apartheid remembered only in her death?

Thousands of mourners 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.

During Mandela's 27-year incarceration for his fight against apartheid, Madikizela-Mandela campaigned for his release and for the rights of black South Africans undergoing detention, banishment, and arrest.

After Ramaphosa's eulogy, there was a religious service, whereafter the hearse started making its way to Madikizela-Mandela's final resting place, the Fourways Memorial Park, in pouring rain.

Condolences poured in from around the world in remembrance of one of the 20th century's most prominent political activists. "My mother is one of the many women who rose against patriarchy, prejudice and the might of a nuclear-armed state to bring about the peace and democracy we enjoy today" said Mandela-Dlamini. They could never go because of her illness. "She never stopped serving", he told reporters.

When Mandela left prison in 1990, she stood next to him, one hand clasped in his as they raised their free hands clenched in fists - a moment memorialized in a photo that became a symbol of his freedom.

Relatives carry the casket containing the body of the late Winnie Mandela at her house in Soweto in Johannesburg on April 13, 2018.

"We should all be happy that her name would be written in the eternal book of life", Malema said.

Also present at the service were South Africa's former presidents Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma, as well as foreign dignitaries from Kenya, Namibia, and Lesotho.

According to Malema, in the 1980s the UDF called a press conference to distance itself from Madikizela-Mandela. In 1993 she was elected president of African Nationa Congress (ANC).

Winnie Mandela refused to follow many other struggle-era politicians who moved from townships like Soweto to formerly white-only suburbs after the end of apartheid. In 1977, she was banished to a remote town to separate her from the heart of the movement she led in Soweto.

It took a toll. She appealed and was discovered responsible of being an adjunct within the assault, and the sentence was decreased to a effective and suspended jail time period. Madikizela-Mandela denied any knowledge of any killings.

After Mandela was imprisoned, Madikizela-Mandela embraced her personal management within the freedom wrestle with steely willpower and at nice private sacrifice. Her stints as a lawmaker, a publish she held till her dying, had been lackluster.

Supporters in the ANC have loudly defended her.

"Mama Winnie would encourage us to go attend school and not leave the country to join the ANC's military wing, Umkhonto weSizwe, because she used to say she wanted educated leaders", said Mkhabane.
