Soweto pays final respects to Winnie Mandela

  • Culture shock for Brazilian photographer attending Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's memorial

Much of the national conversation around Madikizela-Mandela legacy has been driven by the documentary Winnie.

The funeral procession leaves the Orlando Stadium. Many sung liberation struggle songs.

For many South Africans, the most memorable-image of Madikizela-Mandela is her punching the air in a clenched-fist-salute as she walked hand-in-hand with Mandela out of Victor Verster prison, near Cape Town, on February 11, 1990.

"We see you in your suits, sell-outs". "Let us honour her memory by pledging here that we will not betray the trust of her people, we will not squander or steal their resources, and that we will serve them diligently and selflessly", Ramaphosa said. "Too often we were not there for her as she tried to rise", he said.

The documentary, however, lacks balance because its ultimate aim is to clear Madikizela-Mandela's name.

Often called the "Mother of the Nation" and "Mama Winnie", Madikizela-Mandela fought to keep South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle in the worldwide spotlight while her husband, Nelson Mandela, was imprisoned. Her reputation was tainted by accusations of human rights violations that seemed sometimes at odds with Mandela's fight for inclusiveness.

"She confronted gun-carrying white men who were sworn killers of the apartheid defence force throughout the long years of the state of emergency in the 1980s". Zukiswa was speaking for the Madikizela family at Orlando stadium during the funeral proceedings.

He said they are from a generation that is fortunate to have lived in the time of Madikizela-Mandela. Dalindyebo is a traditional leader from the area where Mandela hails from.

She said Madikizela Mandela suffered at the brutality of the Apartheid government and humiliation. He said apartheid and patriarchy could not break her.

In a moving, yet fiery eulogy, her daughter slammed her mother's critics.

Soon after, she met Nelson Mandela at a bus stop in Soweto, when she was 22, and they tied the knot in the summer of 1958. Why didn't you do the same to any of her male counterparts and remind the world of the many crimes they committed before they were called saints.

"Long before it was fashionable to call for Nelson Mandela's release from Robben Island, it was my mother who kept his memory alive", Zenani Mandela-Dlamini said as the audience packing a 40,000-seat stadium erupted in cheers.

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

"However, we are happy that after her death truth has been coming out one by one, ' she added. She had a very hard life". Because hers is one of the most unique stories in recent history.

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

The leader of the South African opposition political party Julius Malema praised the late struggle icon. She grew to become involved with a band of men after Madikizela-Mandela returned in exile.

Noami Campbell broke down as she paid her tribute in the fully packed stadium. Madikizela-Mandela had wanted him to visit Marikana, the site of the 2012 massacre, with Malema and Ramaphosa said he would go with the young firebrand "to heal the wounds". "It was a spear that throughout the darkest moments of our struggle she wielded with great courage". Without her, we wouldn't know anything of grandpa's (Nelson Mandela) struggles, and what he was going through. She always stood tall. When we lost our loved ones, when people were in pain, overcome with anger, prone to violence, she came to touch our wounds.

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.

The late Madikizela Mandela united some people as witnessed by the attendance of people across the political divide. In 1993 she was elected president of African Nationa Congress (ANC).

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

Madikizela Mandela died on April 2 in Johannesburg at the age of 81. The President declared 10-day mourning with flags flying at half mast.
