  • ANC Women's League held a memorial service for Mam'Winnie

Several presidents and former presidents from both South Africa and different parts of the continent attended the event, where Madikizela-Mandela's daughters delivered a fiery tribute to the fallen hero.

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.

Diverting from his prepared speech, Ramaphosa said at the celebration of her 80th birthday in September 2016, she invited him and EFF leader Julius Malema to visit the widows of the mineworkers slain in the Marikana massacre of 2012.

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.

Mourners wore black, green and gold - colors of the ruling African National Congress political party.

"In apartheid South Africa, the combination of patriarchy and racism together meant that black women confronted enormous obstacles from the cradle to the grave - making her own achievements all the more exceptional", he said Friday at a memorial in NY, not mentioning Nelson Mandela at all.

Madikizela-Mandela's legacy, however, was later tarnished. In 1977, she was banished to a remote town.

"Mama never depended on anyone but the members of the MKMVA zone 11 her zone for close protection, because she did not believe in getting an outsider to protect her".

It took its toll.

In her final words, Zenani acknowledged that she and her sister Zindzi have been fortunate to have Winnie and Nelson Mandela as their parents.

"Proud, defiant, articulate, she uncovered the lie of apartheid", President Cyril Ramaphosa mentioned throughout his tribute. "Bua!" Mandela-Dlamini questioned why some who had known the truth about her mother waited until her death to speak. 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.

Ms Madikizela-Mandela denied any knowledge of any killings.

Though she fought fiercely for democracy, Ms Madikizela-Mandela floundered in a political career after the first free elections in 1994. The following year, she was appointed deputy Prime Minister of arts, culture, science and technology in Mandela's unity government but she was later fired after allegations of corruption emerged.

Malema said he had spoken to Seipei's mother who refused to speak on the podium because she didn't want to cause unnecessary squabbles at "the mother of the nation's funeral". "This is our heroine".
