Geingob praises, honours Madikizela-Mandela

ANC supporters attended Mama Winnie's funeral

Also present at the funeral service were former presidents Thabo Mbeki, Kgalema Motlanthe and Jacob Zuma, dignitaries from African countries and celebrities such as British supermodel Naomi Campbell and United States civil rights activist Jesse Jackson.

The state-owned New Era reported in early April that Swapo Party Women's Council secretary Eunice Ipinge had said "plans are underway to name a street in honour of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela as per President Hage Geingob's directive in 2015".

The EFF leader, who once described Madikizela-Mandela as the " brick the builders rejected", berated the liberation movement for not allowing the struggle hero to speak when then president of the ANC youth league, Peter Mokaba, died.

President Cyril Ramaphosa will deliver the eulogy. What do I tell them; what about those who killed their husbands for selfish gains?

People attended the funeral service in the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg on empty stomachs and with hopelessness etched on their faces - a reflection of where we are as a country.

Madikizela-Mandela's death on April 2 at the age of 81 after a long illness was met by an outpouring of emotion across the country, with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and opposition parties holding memorials to remember her courage in the struggle to end white-minority rule.

"She was a woman who was the epitome of black female resistance against oppression, racism and imperialism", he added.

"Her burning flame of passion shall continue to illuminate our lives, as we continue our struggle into its second phase -that of economic emancipation", he said.

"And to those of you who vilified my mother through books, on speeches, and on social media, don't even think for a minute that we have forgotten".

Zanani also slammed the media's "obsession" with her mother's personal life, saying that "the world holds men and women to different standards of morality".

"Despite the hardships of the struggle, she emerged ever defiant and brimming with more determination to bring about change in the lives of her brothers and sisters", said Geingob at the burial of Madikizela- Mandela on Saturday. The service will be held at the Orlando Stadium and it will then proceed to her resting place at Memorial Park Cemetery in Fourways.
