South Africans say good-bye to Winnie Mandela after days of mour

Fivaz conceded this week that there were efforts by the apartheid state to discredit Madikizela-Mandela.

"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.

South Africans trooped out in their thousands to pay last respect to Winnie Mandela, wife of former President Nelson Mandela as she is laid to rest on Saturday.

A black hearse carrying the body of Mandela, one of the most divisive figures in the anti-apartheid struggle, slowly drove to her house led by uniformed men bearing the flag of her African National Congress (ANC) party.

"It is sad that she had to pass away without some of us knowing her".

"I was not aware of what she has done for us and I am still shocked after I learned the truth about the extent to which she went to fight for us, - being a black woman in a male-dominated country".

Mandela-Dlamini - who struggled to begin her speech as she was interrupted by bouts of coughing - said popular history had erased Madikizela-Mandela's contributions and other women from the liberation struggle.

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

She said it was she that convinced Madikizela-Mandela to use Madikizela in her surname so that people will know she was a Madikizela before she was a Mandela, and that she jumped up and down in excitement when she heard the double-barrel surname for the first time on the news. She will still be the voice of the people. But because she had such a big heart, my mother could also love the community where she lived, no matter where that was.

Malema challenged the ANC to rename Cape Town International airport in Madikizela-Mandela's name in honour of her legacy. She believed it was her calling to defend and protect both from the constant assaults by the Apartheid State.

Although she fought fiercely for democracy, Madikizela-Mandela floundered in a political profession after the primary free elections in 1994. "She had trust in the MKMVA members from her zone", said the member.

"I'd like to encourage you to be active and help your communities in any way you can".

After Mandela was imprisoned, Madikizela-Mandela embraced her own leadership in the freedom struggle with steely determination and at great personal sacrifice.

Mandela, who died in Johannesburg aged 81 on April 2 after a long illness, was celebrated for keeping her husband Nelson Mandela's dream of a non-racial South Africa alive during his 27-year imprisonment.
