Why President Uhuru's Tweet Trended in South Africa on Saturday

Mourners line the streets of Soweto as a hearse carrying the body of Winnie Mandela makes its way through the township

Thousands of mourners gathered in South Africa's Soweto township on Saturday to bid farewell to anti-apartheid heroine Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in a funeral ceremony that united the nation as people from various political divides celebrated her life.

Since her death April 2 at 81, many South Africans have fiercely stood up for Madikizela-Mandela's memory against critics who have characterized her as a problematic figure who was implicated in political violence after she returned from years of banishment in a rural town.

Malema's assertions seem to have been confirmed by South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, who is also ANC president when he said Madikizela Mandela was alone.

Zukiswa Madikizela is one of Madikizela-Mandela's sisters, she says the family will miss the struggle stalwarts greatly.

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. Not long after, she met African National Congress activist Mandela and the couple married in 1958, forming one of the most storied unions of the century.

Former South African Presidents Jacob Zuma and Thabo Mbeki are also attending the funeral.

According to Mkhabane, Madikizela-Mandela used to talk to the Detainees Parents Support Committee to try and encourage the parents of political detainees to get their children to return to school and get an education. In 1977, she was banished to a distant city. They could never go because of her illness.

It took its toll.

Memorial to Hither Green burglar torn down but…
One of Osborn-Brooks' neighbours told the paper: "If it was safe for him to return, that shrine would turn his stomach". The controversial shrine was then replaced by three women, who fastened bouquets and balloons to the same fence.


He said they are from a generation that is fortunate to have lived in the time of Madikizela-Mandela.

They were accused of the disappearances and killings of at least 18 boys and young men and the group's leader was convicted of killing a 14-year-old boy, nicknamed "Stompie", bwho was accused of being a police informer.

Zezani was almost born in prison, as Winnie Mandela was arrested close to her birth in 1959 and when she was four her father was sent to prison, where he would stay for the next 27 years. 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.

After Mandela was imprisoned, Madikizela-Mandela embraced her personal management within the freedom wrestle with steely willpower and at nice private sacrifice.

Following Makhura was a friend of Madikizela-Mandela only identified as Mrs Mokgobo.

At her official memorial service on Wednesday, family members and supporters defended her legacy against detractors.

"She gave everything she had", the party's deputy secretary general, Jessie Duarte, has said. This is our hero.
