Thousands Of Mourners Bid Winnie Mandela Farewell

Jesse Jackson: Madikizela-Mandela redefined SA struggle

Madikizela-Mandela was married to Nelson Mandela for 38 years, including the 27 years he was imprisoned on an island near Cape Town.

Listen to Naomi Campbell's full tribute above.

Some of the family members were transported to the stadium in white buses and President Cyril Ramaphosa's motorcade followed shortly after. Madikizela-Mandela denied any knowledge of any killings. "Winnie's life was of service to her people, it was a life of compassion".

"They robbed my mother of her rightful legacy during her lifetime", she said of Winnie, who she praised for taking on "one of the most powerful and evil regimes of the past century".

The veteran politician and activist would make a grand return to parliament in 2007 owing to her popularity among the poor black South Africans and the youth and would continue pushing for reforms as disillusionment swept across the majority poor black South Africans.

Supporters in the ANC have loudly defended her. The pain you inflicted on her lives on in us. She remains our conscience.

Campbell arrived at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg after the service had already begun‚ and was ushered in by Minister Jeff Radebe's wife‚ Bridget.

Among the bouquets piled outside its gate, a new memorial bears the legend "I am the product of the masses, of my country and the product of my enemy", a 1996 quote attributed to Madikizela-Mandela.

She spoke of how warm Mam'Winnie was whenever she visited her during trips to South Africa.

Mrs Madikizela-Mandela was a social worker when she met her future husband, then a prominent anti-apartheid campaigner, in the 1950s. "The contest has been shrill and depressing in equal measure", wrote Palesa Morudu, a publisher and writer, last week. "We know her. We don't need [former police commissioner during Apartheid] George Fivaz to tell us about Winnie Mandela‚" Malema said.

"You said we must go back to the ANC".

President Ramaphosa described Mrs Madikizela-Mandela as a symbol of resistance who laid bare the edifice of patriarchy.

Days, weeks, and years passed by, but the people hadn't perished yet, but he kept repeating the same message over and over again.

As the violence of the apartheid authorities reached new intensity, Madikizela-Mandela was drawn into a world of internecine betrayal, reprisals and atrocity. "In so many ways‚ she is like Esther".

The end of apartheid marked the start of a string of legal and political troubles.

Under developments, the entry said: "In preparation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela International Airport was extensively expanded and renovated".

For years, she was routinely harassed by apartheid-state safety forces, imprisoned and tortured.

She challenged President Thabo Mbeki over harmful HIV policies and in 2008 she took up the cause of immigrants under attack in widespread riots.

Hundreds of people lined the township's streets as a black hearse carrying her body slowly drove to her house led by uniformed men bearing the flag of Mandela's African National Congress (ANC).
