South Africa bids farewell to anti-apartheid icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela

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

The younger Madikizela-Mandela grew up in what's now Japanese Cape province and got here to Johannesburg as town's first black feminine social employee.

Her official funeral service was held at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

Many memorialising Ms Madikizela-Mandela have recognised her as a political force in her own right.

Malema said if the ANC was serious about honouring Madikizela-Mandela and her legacy, then they would name the mother city's airport after her.

Typically referred to as the "Mom of the Nation" and "Mama Winnie", Madikizela-Mandela fought to maintain South Africa's anti-apartheid wrestle within the worldwide highlight whereas her husband, Nelson Mandela, was imprisoned. And as each of them disavowed these lies, I had to ask myself: 'Why had they sat on the truth and waited till my mother's death to tell it?' It is so disappointing to see how they withheld their words during my mother's lifetime, knowing very well what they would have meant to her.

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

"She made a choice to raise two families, hers and the beloved country", Mandela-Dlamini said. "The contest has been shrill and depressing in equal measure", wrote Palesa Morudu, a publisher and writer, last week.

Syria air strikes: what do we know so far?
The attack began at 4 a.m. (0100 GMT) with missiles hitting the eastern suburbs of Damascus, shaking the grounds from a distance. But the damage was limited, and a defiant Assad returned to episodic use of chlorine and perhaps other chemicals.

"There were times when people could not afford a funeral and she would assist", said neighbour Gloria Searole, 31, a service consultant who went to catch a glimpse of the procession along with her daughter. "The battle for our freedom was not some polite picnic to which you arrive with your best behaviour", she said to cheers. Because anyone who reads that book grasps just how much my mother dedicated her life to the struggle for a free South Africa. Her courage and defiance brought her a huge personal following.

As the violence of the apartheid authorities reached new intensity, Madikizela-Mandela was drawn into a world of internecine betrayal, reprisals and atrocity. The boys had been accused of the disappearances and killings of at the least 18 boys and younger males and the chief was convicted of killing a 14-year-old, nicknamed "Stompie", accused of being a police informer.

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

"Praising her now that she's gone exhibits what hypocrites you're", she mentioned throughout her speech. "Loudly and with out apology, she spoke reality to energy".

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

Not until 1974, when she was 16 years old, could she visit him.

The coffin draped with the multi-coloured South African flag was placed in the middle of the 37,500-seat stadium in front of a stage, decked in white and yellow flowers.
