A fiery send-off for the mother of the nation Winnie Madikizela-Mandela

Ghana mourns Winnie Mandela

What do I tell them; what about those who killed their husbands for selfish gains?

Minutes before the arrival of the late Struggle icon's body, rain soaked the artificial grass. "She fought because the fight against apartheid was not some polite picnic at which you showed up in your best behaviour", she said.

"Mama those who sold you out to the regime are here".

Ramaphosa, who delivered the eulogy, not only acknowledged some of the accusations levelled by Malema against the ANC but also apologised for the party having failed to honour the iconic political activist and long-time party member while she was still alive.

"We see you in your suits, sell-outs". "Life is so unfair‚" Malema, clad in all black, said.

There will be plenty of time within the next few days to think about the political impact of the state funeral of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela ... and about those who saw it as an opportunity to score points over their opponents, or to burnish their own images.

She died at the age of 81. She took on the most evil and powerful regime of the past century.

April 14, 2018 - The Orlando Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg was packed to capacity on Saturday for the funeral of struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

He said he had a conversation with her shortly before her death about her worries and her wishes.

Thousands who sang and cheered as the funeral procession made its way out of the stadium followed it through the streets of Soweto, with some crying as they escorted their beloved "mother of the nation" to her final resting place.

Malema closed his emotive tribute by asking that Cape Town International Airport be named after her. Aremu hailed what he called consolidation of democratic process in Africa citing "the new development in Zimbabwe and successful swearing-in of President, Cyril Ramaphosa, as the 5th President of the Republic of South Africa following the resignation of former President Jacob Zuma".

With full certainty, Julius Malema is an outspoken politician.

He was followed by family and other dignitaries who attended the internment after a drive from the Orlando Stadium.
