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 U.S. civil rights activist Jesse Jackson.

Then he lashed out at executives of the ruling ANC's women's league who also disowned Winnie Mandela at a time she was leading the group, then again he added: "Ma, I'm waiting for a signal on how we should treat them".

"You [Madikizela-Mandela] trusted that your mission of putting the country first was embraced by an organisation that you loved; but Mama, you did not know that your organisation had been rendered incapable of loving you back", said Malema. 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". What do I tell them; what about those who killed their husbands for selfish gains?

The ANC praised Madikizela-Mandela for her resilience and refusal to stand by while people suffered. Geingob said they came to mourn and to celebrate a life of a daughter of the African soil, who did not choose to be larger than life, but through her selfless actions, became a towering figure in the milieu of the liberation struggle. The reignition of her legacy has reigned supreme with women everywhere wearing black and power doeks.

"Mama Winnie was a true freedom fighter and she never sold the struggle", he said.

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

"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".

She also questioned why men in the struggle weren't subjected to the same scrutiny, and said, "double standards obscure the huge efforts of women" in the struggle.

Part one of the programme will take place at her home and thereafter the programme will move to Orlando Stadium for the final tribute.
