Praising Winnie in her death is hypocritical , family tells SA government

  • The flag-draped casket carrying the remains of struggle icon Winnie Madikizela Mandela arrives at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto South Africa Saturday

He said he would ask the ANC's national executive committee to award her the highest honour awarded to stalwarts in the party, called Isithwalandwe or Seaparankoe.

"I'm sorry, Mama, that your organisation delayed in according you its honour, to this point in time and moment". 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.

"We gather here to bid farewell to Mam" Winnie Nomzamo Madikizela Mandela - a mother‚ a grandmother‚ a great grandmother‚ a sister‚ a great leader who we have come to refer to as the Mother of our Nation‚ whose grandchildren affectionately refer to as "Big Mama'".

Earlier on Saturday morning, Gauteng premier David Mahura said in his welcoming to the service that the "truth will triumphantly march forward to tell us who" Madikizela-Mandela was. As she said in her lifetime, 'I am the product of the masses of my country and the product of my enemy'. "They wanted to see her broken, with bowed head and lowered eyes, and weakened by soulful cries, but still she rose", he said as he delivered the eulogy for Madikizela-Mandela.

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.

Winnie's activism and battle to end apartheid was also mired by controversy, and she was frequently linked to "necklacing" - placing a petrol-soaked auto tyre around the necks of traitors, and setting it alight.

2003 saw Winnie Mandela convicted of fraud and theft in 2003 over a bank loan scam that would further tarnish her rich legacy. Without the distortions.' It is not two years since I uttered those words and already they're coming true. "She was an exceptional woman, she was fearless".

"She was perpetually in the trenches, never afraid that it would be too much for her to bear".

Ramaphosa says that South Africa is burdened by the sorrow of Winnie's death, but the people are also comforted by the richness and profound meaning of her life.

Dlamini said the Mother of the nation always showed leadership and deserves recognition even beyond her life on earth. Madikizela-Mandela denied any knowledge of any killings.

"Mama Winnie's life was about service, service to her people".

"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?". She believed it was her calling to defend and protect both from the constant assaults by the Apartheid State. "It is important to honour her and continue the fight".

Zukiswa Madikizela, one of Madikizela-Mandela's three sisters, paid tribute on behalf of the Madikizela family.

Winnie Mandela, who died in Johannesburg aged 81 on April 2 after a long illness, has been celebrated for helping keep Nelson Mandela's dream of a non-racial South Africa alive while he was behind bars for 27 years.

"Your daughter got married to be on her own but she managed to overcome all the pain and suffering to a point where your name is a legendary status". The same people who sold you out? South Africans stood by the road side as the funeral procession proceeded to the stadium.
