Mama Winnie's family to speak today

Mourners at Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's funeral in Orlando Stadium on Saturday

We have been touched by your humanity. She did it with you - and continues to do it with us, smiling down from on high.

While many will remember Winnie as a fearless and powerful Black woman, a champion of women's rights and one of the most potent symbols of resistance to the apartheid state, her legacy is more complicated and marred by allegations of her involvement in human rights abuses. Because hers is one of the most unique stories in recent history.

Mara Louw, who is close to the family, said they were not prepared for her death.

"Mama Winnie was the first feminist icon - other than my grandmother - that I encountered".

At the age of 22, she met and married a young lawyer and anti-apartheid activist, Nelson Mandela.

Mama Winnie was born in Mbizana in the Eastern Cape on 26 September 1936 and passed away in Johannesburg on Monday‚ 2 April 2018. She drew strength from your strength - your hope, your energy, your experiences, your actions.

Ramaphosa said she defied apartheid ideology and male superiority.

"Further, we believe it puts journalists at serious risk of physical harm and having their credibility unnecessarily questioned.Those who have concrete evidence of any such wrongdoing by journalists working in South Africa at the height of apartheid should come forward", Sanef said. It is so hard to see how they withheld their words during my mother's lifetime knowing very well what they would have meant to her.

Thank you for inviting me to share in this special evening. What must we tell them ma. Don't think we have forgotten. "We didn't do the identical for her", he mentioned.

She led an worldwide campaign calling for his release. "It is turn into clear that South Africa, and certainly the world, holds women and men to completely different requirements of morality". "The battle for our freedom was not some polite picnic to which you arrive with your best behaviour", she said to cheers.

This week, Winnie Madikizela Mandela will be laid to rest and honored at a state funeral in South Africa.

"To this day, I ask God to forgive me, for not forgiving Tutu".

"The pain inflicted on her lives forever even after her death".

Dlamini-Mandela, who struggled to speak a few times, said her mother had dedicated her life to freedom.

"She made a choice to raise two families, her personal family and the people". She was not prepared to choose between the two.

The stadium is on its way to being packed as ANC and EFF supporters can be seen singing together proudly.

Five years ago we lost my father and the world descended on South Africa to show its love for him. She warned the "hypocrites" who hid the truth and marginalised her mother.
